Lake Louise, AB, Canada

Today we made it to Lake Louise. We left the trailer back in the campground, and drove the 28km (17miles) up the highway. Today was Monday, so we expected there to be less people. As we drove by, we noticed the Overflow lot was completely empty, a good sign. The “answer guy” who Harold had driven […]

Vernon – where the birds really mean business

We had planned to drive from Peachland to Roger’s Pass today, and got an early start so we wouldn’t get in too late. Things were going well, we were making good time, and we were looking to take a break and have breakfast on our way through Vernon. On the passenger side of the road […]

Penticton and the Naramata Bench, BC

I’ve heard of the Naramata Bench so much in the past, it has been cemented in my mind as THE wine destination of the Okanagan. We had to backtrack to Penticton to get over to the other side of Okanagan Lake where all the Naramata wineries are and decided to stop on the way for […]

Cycling: Whidbey, Fidalgo and San Juan Islands, WA

I joined a few Meetup groups from Seattle since they tend to do some thing up near here and I’m also interested in what they are doing down there. One of them doesn’t have a lot of events but when they do they are at least a weekend or longer, typically cycling, but also kayaking […]

Bellingham, WA: Cycling Chuckanut Drive and Lake Samish

We drove down to Fairhaven, where we parked, at the top end of Chuckanut, then began our cycle down along one of the most beautiful winding coastal roads in the US. We were definitely cursing the fact we’d forgotten the camera, as the views were breathtaking … and I mean that in a very un-Seinfeld-like […]
