... are enjoying the out of doors the entire week. How dare they?
Anyway, we were getting a little desperate for a place to stay on July 2, a travel day, never mind leaving Columbia Falls early. Finally we are able to book a night at the infamous Fairmont Hot Springs RV Park. It's quite expensive, but what's a mother to do?

We went passed Lake Donald's, stopping there for a picnic lunch. Had the 1/2 lb bison burger with salad. Dad and mum had a sausage sandwich with chips. The chips tasted really good. It's not too salty yet crispy. Bought quite a lot of stuff from the souvenir store too that included postcards, fridge magnets, Christmas ornaments ...
