    One of the many highlights of driving the Icefields Parkway is the point where the road crosses the mighty Saskatchewan river. My trips have been in the winter and seeing The Crossing for gasoline and a little something to eat is a welcome sight.

    The Crossing Resort is a family owned and operated resort and was originally called the Saskatchewan River Bungalows Camps. The Crossing was built by George Brewster in 1948. It consisted of what is now the office and two cabins. The old location of The Crossing was approximately one mile south on the old dirt road that runs behind the motel today. In 1963. Highway 93 was opened and The Crossing was relocated to its present site.

    The food is pretty good, yet pricey. But besides what you packed, what are you going to do way out here? I also appreciate the convenience on this scenic stretch and the economic challenges to keep places like this running. That means that I'll throw these guys some business every time I'm in the area.
