Second FULL-DAY-AWAY.  The Province of BC is having a tuff-go with all the forest fires!  Many people’s summer-homes and cottages are without protection from Mother Nature.  [I learned when we got back to Calgary, that my auto-mechanic “loss everything.”  He and his family were able to flee the flames only days before “their dreams were ex-tinguished.”  Because of that very threat of forest fires; only 1 access road in or out, and no town or fire-brigade nearby — their $150K retire-ment hide-away disappeared.]

There’s no trace of smoke in the air, around Kimberly today.  We took a short 30-minute drive to the south-east.  Most of the fires are burning MUCH further north … about 700 – 1,000 kilometers.  We actually have had a bit of rain throughout the day!  (Much around us is surprisingly green.)

We are on our way to Fort Steele, (BC).  Great historic site with many, many fun attractions.  “All Aboard!” [more to come]
