The Best Tour by a Damsite

Our "Late-summer" Tour will be held August 30th - September 2nd. The tour will "hub" out of a beautiful 8,000 sq ft lodge in Glenwood Alberta. There will be three days of touring starting on the day we arrive at the lodge. Breakfast will be served at the lodge and we will enjoy an evening at the Great Canadian Barn Dance, a catered meal at the Lodge and a BBQ at The Meadows.  

Pincher Creek

This will be the longest tour day.  From Glenwood we will travel to Pincher Creek and visit the Kootenai Brown Museum.  We will also pay a visit to Beauvais Lake, Beaver Mines, cross the headwaters of the Old Man River Dam and stop to view Lundbreck Falls.  The evening meal will be at the Great Canadian Barn Dance.

Beaver Mines

Waterton

On our way to Waterton we plan to stop in Hillspring for a long arm quilting demonstration, a tour of the Demes Stained Glass Studio, a tour of Brian Hall's eclectic antique collection and a tour of the Blue Ridge Hutterite Colony. Our destination will be Red Rock Canyon.  On the way home we will cross over the Waterton Dam.

That evening we will enjoy a catered banquet back in Glenwood at The Lodge.

Cardston

This is the tour we take on the day of arrival.  After unloading our Ts and picking our rooms, we will enjoy a light lunch at The Lodge. We will then take a short drive to Cardston for a tour of the Remington Carriage Centre.  On the way back we will travel through Beazer and on to Mountain View for an ice cream stop. On the way back to The Lodge we will stop at "The Meadows" for a corn roast and BBQ.

Here is a tentative map of the tour. This may be refined over the course of the summer.

The Lodge

The Lodge is a private residence built and owned by the Prince family.  It has 13 bedrooms, and 4 bathrooms. Each bedroom has its own theme and is maintained by one of the Prince children. The logs were cut near the base of Chief Mountain. It is now a recreational property used by family members and a few friends and relatives (Marge Wolff is a relative).

There is plenty of space to park car trailers, and RVs for those who prefer their own accommodations. In fact if the tour is over-subscribed some RVs will be a must.
