Cattle Dog.

Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.”

We went random camping near Limestone Mountain, Alberta, Canada for a few days. We have camped near Limestone Mountain a few times and once before in the same spot, you can see the post here.

We had a nice spot next to the river.

The weather was cool and we had some rain.

Even though we camped over the weekend, there weren’t too many people.

“Wild camping, also called Random camping, is the act of camping in a non-designated camping area. This could include car camping in an allowed area, or maybe it involves an expedition style trek that can take you miles away from civilization.” –

Feral Horses. 

“Wild horses” or “feral horses”? The debate rages on in Alberta, Canada. The provincial government believes that the wild horses west of Sundre, Alberta are the descendants of domestic horses used in logging and guiding/outfitting operations in the early 1900’s. The Wild Horse Society of Alberta (WHOAS) believes that they are of Spanish descent. WHOAS is so sure of this that they have sent away DNA samples to the University of Texas, Equine Genetics Lab for testing.” – Wild Horses Of Alberta

What time is it when a bull sits on your car?

Cattle Grazing on leased Crown land.  

Turn the udder cheek and mooo-ve on.

It’s better to be seen and not herd.

If you didn’t like that cow joke don’t worry, I’ve got udders.

A Cattle dog that can’t chase cattle, is not much fun.

Meat, baked potatoes, chopped mushrooms, celery, bell peppers, onions, etc. roasted on a 14″x 16″ Camp Chef Flat top griddle.
The Griddle is on a Single Burner Cast Iron propane Stove, but we also use it over the fire.

Random camping




    • It took some scouting, but it’s great !
      We name the places, this one’s called cow patty, because the previous time that we camped there, we had to cover the patties with sawdust 😉


  1. I took one look at the aspen trees and automatically knew this must’ve been taken in Alberta somewhere near to me. Maybe my folks and I will head out there too for a camp trip sometime soon.


    • Hello, fellow Albertan 💕
      Those trees are lovely, especially for tree bathing, I will try to take more photos of them on our next trip.
      It’s great camping in the Bearberry valley, let me know when you come so that I can recommend some nice places.
