Day 4 - Brandon, MB to Brooks, AB

the welcome centre in was closed, so we took a pic with the giant wheat and then left the province

pee break somewhere flat...

but flat means big sky. look at that! i did find a certain beauty in the flat farm fields, gentle, rolling hills and huge skies.

bug splattered sunrise (view through the windshield)

beautiful sunrise over hay bales in Brandon, Manitoba
Saskatchewan was closed, so we decided to push through to Alberta instead.
after hours of wheat fields, we started to see pump jacks and rolling hills.
as we made our way past Medicine Hat, we dodged a tornado in the Badlands.
settled in Brooks for the night, up for an early start through Calgary.
looking forward to the Icefields Parkway up to Jasper, for our night at the Fairmont (thanks to Aunt Carol & Uncle Rob!)

  1. hey cuz and cuz,
    just checkin the blog-aroo with zia lisa and we are surprised (and a little confused) to hear that Sasquatch-ewan is "closed". We didn't know that an entire province could just shut down.
    Anyways, it's nice to see that your epic road trip is creating many memories and we are anxiously waiting to see if it'll be Smithers or bust!
    Love you guys (Jon, sorry if that's a bit gay, but it's true)
    David, Beaner and Zia Lisa
