Monday morning we got packed up pretty quickly. I wanted to take a picture of the dogs by the Spruce Meadows sign, but that wasn't very successful. The sign was in the shade, and it was too big.
In front of the well known (okay, you might have watched horses jumping over it) Canada jump, where the podium from the awards the night before was still there.
And here we are with Christine and Kozmo and his 3rd place rosette and his four individual class placement ribbons
And the process of getting 6 people and 6 dogs all posed
And then we took a stroll around the grounds. Beautiful place, and visitor and dog friendly. Seems you can just drive in and wander around.
Beautiful horse statues on the lawns
And real ones too
Finally we got on the road about noon.
Heading back through the foothills to the Rockies
Another stop in Canmore for the essentials, which included exercising, and then cooling off, the dogs
And more impressive scenery
We did eventually run into some crummy weather. Torrential rain and wind one spot coming through the mountains.
We had been lucky in Calgary. Mostly sun and about 25 degrees max. A bit of drizzle on Sunday morning, and then it cleared up. A couple of distant thunderstorms that had Jake trembling. My poor sensitive little dog:(
Thankfully the blueberry cannons that we have going off near us at home don't seem to bother him.
We stayed in Revelstoke at the same campsite as before, and it rained all night.
In the morning the igloo was gone, well nothing left but a ring where it had been stuck to the roof.
I guess rain is it's downfall.
