Well it's funny... this stage of the blog is about our stay in Red Deer, but what did we actually do in Red Deer?? Not as much as we did outside of Red Deer! First of all, our trip to Red Deer was an amazing adventure, we took a 4 and half hour detour through the Rockies on our way to Calgary. The mountains we absolutely beautiful, we would have camped in there had it not been snowing and minus 5 (or more!). Not only were the mountains beautiful, but the wildlife was quite the sight and were everywhere. We got stopped dead on the road by a group of Rocky Mountain sheep.

Rich and Daisy went shopping and then read under a shady tree while they waited. No dogs were allowed in the sanctuary. It was a 2 1/2 mile hike around a couple of lakes and up and down some hills, so Nancy had a workout! She added two birds to her list. One was the red-necked grebe.
