Canadian Border crossing

We crossed at Sweetgrass/Couts this afternoon after a good run up I-15 from Idaho Falls, Id. I think we got the Royal Canadian welcome. It was raining so they had us park in a nice big dry shop and questioned us about our destination and if we had any illicit items to declare before they admired our truck and trailer. I told them where the hunting knives were and let them proceed while my wife, dog and I waited in a waiting area off the inspection bay.

They did not take our frozen hamburger, onions, potatoes or eggs. I didn't count my Snickers bars but they were moved around from where they were in the fridge.

Also my DUI conviction from 1973 didn't come back to haunt me.

We were kind of nervous but we were out of there in about 20 minutes.

jgourlie, we too are on our way to your neck of the woods. A month or so in Canada then on to Alaska. Hanging out in South Dakota for a few days now. I am interested in seeing that RR crossing in Lethbridge, built in 1905-7, 6000' long by 600' high, and still being used today. WOW! Talk about engineering!
Travel safe

It is pretty impressive...If you are feeling dangerous you can try and walk out on it, just hope a train doesn't come along.

At Christmas time CP rail did a train all decked out in Christmas lights and it stopped on the bridge in the dark and it looked like the train was just floating in the air.
