Forestry Trunk Road (AB Hwy 40)

Took a little trip up the Forestry Trunk Road in Alberta this past weekend and spent a couple nights out random camping with my wife.

The road is largely narrow gravel/logging road, though is peppered with a lot of off-road detours.

TH handled it well, unsurprisingly. Spent both nights sleeping in the TH and with a few adjustments it'll be nicely set up. Memory foam mattress topper will definitely help with that!

Crawling around river bed at Ram Falls.

Ram Falls, itself!

Camping spot on our second night.

Waking up to sunrise.

Concur - great pics. My inner geology geek really wants to get into that area around Ram Falls and that mountain in background of your second night spot! Wish we had more wide-open spaces like that, but it's too crowded here in the middle of the US for random camping (for the most part). When we get back out West that will be more the rule than the exception; having to book at tent spot is not what I dreamed of when we get back into overnighting.
