May 29th Fort MacLeod, Alberta

Fort MacLeod - First command post for the newly formed North West Mounted Police in 1871. Good historical tour. We are now going to follow Hwy 13 which is the Red Coat Trail which is the route that the first mounties took when they march out west.
Daisy May Campsite: Very slow Internet Access......Our rating - 8, pool, laundry..great location for the Fort...on river...we cycled to the fort and saw at least 6 beavers and their dams around dusk.
The most beavers I have ever seen in Canada and no sign of Tim Eastwood or Graham anywhere ( Bramhall joke!!)
