Writing-On-Stone PP, our first stop in Canada
We left Wyoming with an one night stay in Montana at Dick's RV Park a commercial park in Great Falls.
WE had an easy border crossing with 20 questions but mostly about guns, or any gun related products. Gracie, our GPS guided us to our next stop through some unpaved roads. We later had to check the settings and checked unpaved roads to be avoided. Joe had unchecked it when we were doing some off roading and forgot to recheck it. It wasn't a bad drive but we were a little nervous not knowing if the roads would get back. Writing-On-Stone Providential Park, in Aden, Alberta, is a very nice park in a really interesting area. It is in the largest area of protected prairie in the Alberta park system. On the Milk River, there are many aboriginal rock cravings and paintings that are also protected. We got a nice spot in the campground with no one around us.
The trail leads to some petroglyths of a Battle Scene that are protected by a fence. They have faded so much you can hardly see anything and we couldn't even get any good pictures even by enlarging them on the computer. Below shows what it looked like at one time.
