Three Sisters Campground at Dead Man's Flats, AB

Great fall camping Nov 8, 2014 at site 20 right on the Bow River 5 miles down stream from Canmore, 15 from Banff AB

No services, no showers, no flushes, no crowds :-)

Note that careful trailer positioning to keep that solar cell working in the low autumn sun ;-)

Hell I'm waiting for the ski season to start ;-) the good weather delayed the opening till this Friday (14th)

I am headed over to Banff tomorrow for a site with power to use electric heat to get me through the cold spell this week. Its going to be so cold Tuesday morning I might have to plug in the truck also ;-)

This place must be really busy in the summer, but both times we've stayed there (once in the trailer, once in the motorhome) it was off-season and there was lots of space, right on the river's edge if desired. It is a beautiful location.

Nice pics. Weather was fair on Saturday but kind of ugly Sunday (today).

We spent Saturday night in Canmore visiting a son who works on the mountain at Sunshine Village and drove home today in the snowstorm. That was sure a miserable 400 km drive. Glad I had left the trailer at home this trip. There will likely be at least some fresh snow at the ski hills after this weekend.

We've camped there many times and love the campsite. To bad the last flood did so much damage.

I have never camped there, but it certainly looks worthy. Beautiful photos. Less than an hour from home too, might be a great overnight spot for a spur of the moment decision to go camping.

I went out Saturday to our land NW of Sundre to pick up what will be our daughters Trillium 1300, and when we left in the morning there was close to 3" of snow, and it continued to snow all the way back to Calgary. Very crappy road conditions as the snow was landing on relatively warm ground, and was quite slippery. Glad I took my work truck instead of the Pilot, or we would have never made it up the hill from the river. Really good think we left at 9:30AM, as it was only getting way worse.



BTW Ian, it is now housed in my garage (at home), 5 minutes from your place, should you feel inclined to come around and try to spend some of my money.

We do have LOTS of great beauty here, but there is also tons across this continent, all different in its own way, but equally as beautiful.
