Day Twelve - May 27, 2005 - NW Territories

Pierre Grey's LakesOur weather continued to be gorgeous - 74 degrees and only a few mosquitoes at Pierre Grey's Lakes Campground, situated south of Grande Cache in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies.

North of Grande CacheDay Twelve took us through wonderfully green and lush Waipito River valley to Grande Prairie, a city of some 40,000 people. We saw typical rush hour traffic for the first time during our trip, and a Sears store, a Wal*Mart and shopping malls! Eeh gads! Civilization....

South of Grande Prairie we traveled through Smokey River valley to Grande Cache which is located against a fantastic view of the Canadian Rockies.

Park MapThe Pierre Grey Lakes Campground is one of four campgrounds in the William A. Switzer Provincial Park system with lots of canoeing, boating, fishing and hiking opportunities - looks like a great area to visit again. We noted there was a 12 km/hr speed limit on the lake.
