Burning Man 2015 – Where do we start?

Facebook Twitter When they took our tickets on the way in, they gave us a book and a map. The book is our guide to Burning Man. It details all the events going on (well, all those that made it into the book. We’ll find many others during the week that never made it in) […]

South Dakota Badlands National Park

Facebook Twitter Bismarck was mostly just an overnight spot at a Walmart, that turned into a wonderful find. We went looking for a pet food store and chanced into trying Pancheros Mexican Grill. I figured I might be able to find something to eat there that was meat-free. Imagine my excitement when I found they […]

Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Facebook Twitter You enter Theodore Roosevelt National Park through Medora, ND, which is just 30 minutes east of Beach. It was rainy and cold as we drove in, but the rain was fine and insubstantial. With the mist and fog crawling over the big outcroppings of rocks and heathery landscapes, I was able to confuse myself into thinking I […]

Glacier National Park, Montana

Facebook Twitter There is a Glacier National Park in Canada, and there is another one in the US. The US one is attached to a different Canadian National Park, Waterton Lakes National Park. Wouldn’t it have made more sense for the two Glacier National Parks, only separated by a silly little border to be the […]

Kimberly, BC could have been my hometown

Facebook Twitter My father grew up in Kimberley, but moved to Vancouver when he was 17. I have some very young memories of spending Christmas there at my paternal Grandparents house, but only bits and pieces. One of my most vivid memories is waking up in the middle of the night amidst a group of […]

Banff National Park, AB, Canada

Facebook Twitter Whether we’re hiking, cycling, touring a city or driving highways and byways, we hate backtracking. I always try to find a way to make a trip into a loop, instead of just back and forth. I do this even when going to the mall, driving my daughter to work, or going to the […]

Alarm in the middle of the night

Facebook Twitter At 3 am, one of our alarms – the one in the bedroom, right on my side of the bed – started going off. It wasn’t a huge, screeching alarm. It was more of a nuisance – enough to awaken and frighten me, not enough to have me run screaming from the trailer […]

Jasper National Park

Facebook Twitter From Golden, we drove east through Yoho National Park, and crossed over to Alberta where we lost an hour – we’re now in Mountain time. As soon as you enter Jasper National Park, you hit a toll booth. The ranger asked us how many days we’d be spending and charged us $19.80 per […]

Golden, BC – Kicking Horse Country

Facebook Twitter I’ve never stopped in Golden before, but I should have. It’s a cute little town between the Rocky Mountains and Columbia Mountain ranges with access to six national parks: Banff, Glacier, Jasper, Kootenay, Mount Revelstoke and Yoho. Two rivers meet at the town, Kicking Horse River, famous for whitewater rafting, and the Columbia River, which […]

Penticton and the Naramata Bench, BC

Facebook Twitter 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 […]
