Montana to Calgary Day 4 Roadtrip

It was early to bed for all of us last night! We were completely wiped out from our day. I got a good 8 hours of sleep-I haven't done that in forever! We slept in just a little, but were still on the road by 8:30 am. We drove from Montana, to Calgary in Alberta, Canada. It was rainy and cold most of the way, with temps being in the 40's in some parts. We drove through the Lewis and Clark National Forest. It was beautiful, and we pretty much had the road all to ourselves-in Canada too! It was really very nice, and NO roadwork.
Two cute boys somewhere in Montana. This is the scenic overlook above Sluice Boxes State Park. Far back, in the background is the Lewis and Clark National Forest.
Just over the Canadian border, we stopped at a visitor's center. This big guy was there. What luck! Look at that big face! Look at those sharp teeth! All THREE boys were in dinosaur heaven.
What are these humans doing to this poor T-Rex? He's really cute, but those arms are just useless. See? He couldn't use them to get those humans off of him!
The Calgary Tower. We didn't go up to the top yet. It's right near our hotel. We got to Calgary by about 6:15 pm. We had dinner at a Mexican restaurant-Juan's. It was ok. The sauce was super spicy on the burritos. Poor Riley's mouth was on fire. He learned a lesson about authentic Mexican food though-it can be spicy, it's not like Chipotle. Actually, I think my lips finally stopped burning as well.

This is the view from our hotel room. We are on the 14th floor of the Hyatt. This place was cheap because it's the weekend. They do most of their business during the work week. The internet is WAY expensive. $14 (Canadian) PER device, PER day. When Kevin voiced his concern over this, the nice lady downstairs let us have two devices for the one day price. Kevin said if we hurry and use it tomorrow, before about 8:30 pm, we won't have to pay the 2nd day. Ha ha ha. We'll see. Could be an early post tomorrow.

We are heading to a dinosaur museum tomorrow, which is outside Calgary. If you want to view the rest of my pictures from today, CLICK HERE.
