We took the Alaska Highway from Whitehorse to Edmonton (Alberta), stopped at Liard Hot Springs and booked a provincial park campsite.

A 10-minute walk over a wooden walkway through a swampy area leads us to the hot springs. Being surrounded by moss, ferns, pines, rosehip bushes and marsh grass it almost feels like a mystical place. At the end of the walkway two natural hot springs invite us to jump in.

I’m having coffee at Tim Hortons and in the meantime I’m recharging my laptop and writing this piece. Tonight we’ll be spending our second night in the parking lot of Wal-Mart. This department store chain allows campers with a motorhome to stay for free on their parking lots.

Actually we have up to 30 degrees Celsius so we decided to stay two days in Elk Island National Park.

You can see here Wood and Plains Bisons. There are 250 different species of birds and believe it or not you also can see Pelicans!
