Saturday 23 August 2008: Edmonton, AB to Red Deer, AB via rental car (153 miles)

Today Barbara and I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at our Holiday Inn Express. Then we drove our black Pontiac G5 Avis rental car to the Royal Alberta Museum which has a wonderful collection of minerals from all over the world and a number of lovely wildlife dioramas. From the museum we continued over to "West Ed," which is how locals refer to the West Edmonton Mall, one of the largest malls in the world.
After touring West Ed we drove east of Edmonton to Elk Island National Park where we purchased an annual pass to all of Canada's national parks for CAD 136. In the park we saw bison. From there we returned to Edmonton and then headed south to Red Deer, AB for another overnight at a Holiday Inn Express.
The total mileage driven today by Barbara was 153 miles.
I will post pics from today soon.
