We’ve just received word from Alberta Parks that a temporary repair has been done on the Rock Lake Road, as follows:
The access road into Rock Lake Provincial Park is expected to re-open this afternoon. As of the evening of June 27, some of the water has been diverted and a grader & loads of gravel went into the site this morning to finish the temporary repair. Approximately 1.5-2 km of the dike system upstream has been washed out – if water levels rise again, it may result in another road washout. Alberta Environment, the federal Department of Fisheries& Oceans, Alberta Transportation and Alberta Parks are working together to come up with a longer term solution to the situation.
Just in time for the upcoming long weekend – HOORAY! Let’s hope that a long term solution will be forthcoming, at least before next year’s spring melt.
In the meantime . . .
Laura has been busy in the cook house for the past couple of days. Two batches of cookies (chocolate chip and ginger), two batches of lunch squares (Rice Crispy and date-filled), pumpkin bread, deep-dish apple pie and a caramel-mochachino cheesecake. I’m ready to go for a hike!
