On Thursday, we went to Milk River to visit Jesse (for those who don't know, Jesse is a Canadian we met when we were on exchange in Finland). His parents live on a ranch in the middle of nowhere (although, right next to the Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park). His house in in the photo above...the eagle is a stuffed eagle they have in the kitchen. It's a beautiful house, and they have so many cool things (like stuffed eagles...), lots of animal sculls and books and interesting photos. They were wonderful hosts, and fed us very good food and let us go in the hot tub. Ohmygod, I've never been in a hot tub before, but Seamus and I have decided we're getting one of our own. Theirs was out on the deck, and it was so nice sitting in the hot tub under the stars, drinking beer and talking about Mormons. My hair froze.
We went on a couple of hikes (photos in the next post) and went to the Provincial Park, and played Trivial Pursuit, and looked at animal tracks, and learnt about the tribe that lived in that area of Alberta. Maybe we're just a bit cooped up from being in Waterton for so long but it was the best mini-break ever!
