Aloha Alberta....

Is this really late October in Canada?  Perhaps we could break out the margaritas or pina coladas because the past few days have been extraordinarily warm!  Temperatures in the mid-20s!  A little windy, but I'll take the tropical running temperatures!
Hello Alberta!  Over the next couple weeks, Run The Dream is going to began to understand why Alberta is considered by many across this country to have the best supports and services for families that deal with Autism.  
Despite the strong headwinds, I was able to run into Medicine Hat (aka "The Hat") today.  The cities claim to fame is by Rudyard Kipling's quote "all hell for a basement", referring to the vast reserves of natural gas that it sits on.  One of the many attractions in Medicine Hat is the 'Saamis Teepee' an aboriginal symbol for the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary.  The world's tallest teepee was moved to Medicine Hat in 1991 and stands adjacent to the Trans-Canada Highway.  You can't miss it when you travel through town.
I'd like to thank Medicine Hat Mayor Norm Boucher for meeting with Run The Dream late this afternoon.  I would also like to thank the Cypress Park Resort Inn (south of Maple Creek, SK) and Friendz of Ours B&B (south of Dunmore, AB) for hosting the dream over the past few days.

The Dream Continues...
