We set the GPS on 'Go Home' and it showed we had 670 miles to drive today.
We headed out at 7:55 am. It was raining hard and the weather was saying snow this afternoon in Calgary.
We passed through several small towns but Lethbridge was the biggest. We saw a lot of grain combines on the road also.
Coutts was the last town in Canada before we crossed the boarder.
We crossed the boarder at 11:55 am. We were making great time.
Welcome to the USA.
Welcome to Idaho. The rain had quite and the sky was beautiful. The sunset was even better.
We arrived home at 8:00 pm. The trip monitor showed we traveled 1,985.1 miles on our Canada road trip. It was a great trip. We saw lots of beautiful scenery and the best part was seeing Max and Deanna in Edmonton. They were great hosts and showed us so much Edmonton. But it is always good to be home again.
Elder Max Wade and Sister Deanna Wade. We had a such a great time visiting with them. They showed us around Edmonton where they are serving their mission at this time. It is great to have family. Thank you Max and Deanna for entertaining us so well.
We went to sacrament meeting with Max and Deanna. Three of the YSA Wards they work with meet in this chapel. It is the oldest LDS church in Canada.
A Canadian train we saw along the way. It had so many cars it seemed like it went on forever.
We stopped in Red Deer for a light lunch.
Our first stop in Calgary was the Calgary Alberta Temple. It was Sunday so the gates around the temple were closed. It is a beautiful temple from the outside also.
I think Canada has such a beautiful flag. I love the maple leaf on it. The wind was blowing pretty hard in Calgary.
We stayed at the Executive Royal Hotel
We ate dinner at the Cattle Baron
The sunset was beautiful with the dark clouds starting to form in the sky. It was a good day.
We started out this morning with Max and Deanna and went for a walk on the trails in Edmonton.

Max and Deanna's apartment building. They are being very hospitable and letting us stay with them. We appreciate them very much.
We did a session at the Edmonton Alberta Temple. It was so nice. The people around here are just so friendly and helpful.
The grounds around the temple.
We ate lunch at Soda and Jerks. There are more than 20 items that you can add to your hamburger. The prices were listed so cute on the menu. 13 3/4 ($13.75)
Next we went to the Ledge. The legislature building in Edmonton. It would be like out capital in Boise.
It was built over 130 years ago.
You can go down under the building through a long tunnel. The tunnel also goes under the highway.
The grounds outside the Ledge.
The Centennial Flame.
We went to a dinner theater that night. The dinner was great and the entertainment was great also. The musicians were all so talented. Each of them could play several different instruments and all of them could sing so good. It was a great night. Max and Deanna are taking such good care of us and showing us so many neat things. We are having a great time in Edmonton.
