I think I was wrong there about the border closure back there. I guess you
could look into coming back into the States from the port of entry just
south of Cardston, AB. I think that's the Port of Piegan. It's the next
crossing to the east from Chief Mountain.
So maybe the kybosh isn't fully upon a Waterton finish after all! Look
into it if you want to go that route.
