Moving towards the Rockies, we detoured to visit the Head-Smashed-In-Buffalo-Jump Interpretive Centre. The attractive buildings are designed to blend in with the foothills that surround them. The displays are extremely well done and informative about the way the buffalo were driven off the cliffs to sustain the native tribes with their hides and meat.

While we were there, Bryan and Ken came out and helped Pat install the levelling system we had purchased for our fifth wheel trailer. It really makes a difference.
