What a wonderful over night stay. We left Kimberley with the directions in hand heading for the lodge. As the road changed from pavement with rural farms to gravel road so did the scenery. . What my 16 yr old daughter and I thought would be a long drive turned out to be great time to chat and see wildlife. We saw goats on the side of the rocky hill side, an eagle flying high in the sky and the tail end of a deer as he flagged us onward. We arrived at the lodge mid afternoon and we were greeted with warm welcoming smiles & hellos. After a tour of the beautifully furnished lodge that was so clean and fresh we were shown to our room. The group was waiting for us to arrive and in no time we were in our swim suits and on our way down the path to be introduced to the St. Mary's river. The river has natural rock slides and welcoming crystal clear pools of glacier fed water. Brad was quick to show us where to slide and helped ease my mind that it was safe and fun. And what fun we had at 30+ Celsius we slid and dipped the afternoon away in the river. Some of other guests were trying there hand at fly fishing, Evening came and it wasn't long before Val was calling us up to the lodge for dinner. What a fest we had. It was the evening of the supermoon so we were invited out to the campfire to watch the moon come up. The younger people were hanging out together with Bailey (Brad and Val's teenager daughter) to play cards and visit. When the moon was high in the sky it was time for bed. I awoke to the smell of coffee and soon after a cowboy breakfast of bacon eggs and pancakes. Bailey and Brad had saddled the horses and had then ready for our morning trail ride. The stories and knowledge that they shared with us was captivating as we rode though this amazing territory. This is one of those trips that will be remembered for many years. I only wished I had taken a camera.
