Mike Morrison shares his thoughts and photos from a long weekend spent camping in a yurt, in an Alberta campgrounds. Yurts are very common in the nomadic regions of Mongolia, but they haven’t been so popular here. These yurts are part of a move by the Alberta and National parks systems to make camping easier for new campers. The cost might compare to a night in a hotel, but it’s a lot cheaper than going out and buying all of the equipment you need for camping in one trip.
Enjoy the article, but if you’re one of my writing students, I hope that you’ll note some of the errors, such as subject-verb agreement. For example, “there’s the people…” Since “people” is plural, the sentence should say, “There are the people…”. This kind of casual grammar can be common in blogs since they are often written in a conversational style.
Enjoy the beautiful photos, taken at Pigeon Lake!
