Absolutely beautiful creek running through the area
Someone has a sense of humour, no it doesn't work
The creek below - careful
An old cabin built over 100 yrs ago by a prospector we're told
Inside the cabin
Log steps leading down to the creek
Stunning mountains in background

Ears back, first day and he's over this working for a living business LOL
It was almost 30C (86F) yesterday.
One of many picnic areas to keep clean.
Once back from work we decided it was too hot to cook so off to Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co. Years ago we frequented this place so regularly that they gave us staff shirts. Some of you may have seen Brad's 'Bite Me' shirt... its from here.
Hmmm, to live here again...
Ha Ling Peak in the background. Just below and right of this is a climbing area enroute to the Spray Lakes where we got married 10 years ago next month.
Bow River runs through Canmore
Center right is the back of our old house with Three Sisters in the front yard.
Front of our old house, doesn't look like much here - but it was.
Old neighbours house has a stuffed Polar Bear in an entrance window that was lit up at night.
View from our previous front yard. Hard to take.
Sat outside and chatted with L-R: Steve, Barb, Jim, Gaytha, Brad and Robbie and Dixie in the middle.
So this workamping job requires a check on the camping areas, pick up any garbage, clean the topside of the vault toilets (outhouses, worst part of the job), sell firewood to the campers, ensure compliance (payment and the following of rules). And campground hosts are expected to do all this while enjoying the most amazing views we've seen anywhere and pack a picnic lunch to boot... tough life.
Time will tell, but everyone else who works here seems to love it (many have been here for several years) and the people we are working with/for, all the staff seem friendly, helpful and most of all - happy so, on the face of it, this gig seems like a coup and we are grateful for the opportunity.
