After some elk happened by our campsite for breakfast in a meadow overlooking Rundle Mtn., we drove east out of Banff National Park, around Calgary to visit with Sue and Rod who live on the Prairie near Milo, AB. Quite the topographical contrast; huge mountains in the morning, flat prairie later in the day.
Love the Prairie; Alive, Awesome and so BIG! From where the Yellow Trailer is parked, the prairie stretches virtually treeless and unobstructed for almost 40 km to the horizon. Heard a Meadowlark sing for the first time today. Spotted him perched on a fence post serenading the meadows. W. O. Mitchell would have been thrilled.
A full moon is rising over the eastern horizon. Hope the Great Horned Owl makes his appearance tonight and the coyotes wear their mufflers. If there's a chorus of yips and howls, Cooper and Willow, the Pyrenees and Akbash (Big Whites), will be barking throughout their nighttime rounds.
Don't expect Foster, the indoor kitty will sleep much if they do!
A wonderful visit with friends!
