The Hermit of Inglismaldie

On August 6, 2017 (I know I’m a bit behind!) my mom, my friend, and I wanted to find the hermit cabin near Banff and we did!

The hike to the cabin is pretty easy, it’s just along Johnson Lake.

Day 3 — Okanagan Vacation — Oroville, Washington

The middle of our vacation was slightly more low-key and mainly involved days at the beach, shopping, visiting Oroville, and eating at places we don’t have in Calgary.

That being said, to be honest I don’t have a lot of pictures of this aspect of our trip as I was busy enjoying the moment and I mainly posted my favourite pictures in my first and second posts of this trip. So, if you want more detail and recent pictures then check those out ๐Ÿ˜Š

Day 1 and 2: Osoyoos Desert Centre, Spotted Lake, Osoyoos, and the Penticton Channel

From July 22-July 29 my mom and I went camping in Penticton, British Columbia. My pappy came along for part of the trip. It was a great break and within that week we were able to fit in a LOT of activities! I will be blogging about these activities in multiple posts.

California Adventure

I recently imported all of my blog content (from Travel Pod) regarding my 2014 Reading Break Trip to California! I thought I would let you all know so you could check them out. I had to complete this for an assignment in my Communications Class, but I am very glad I did so I have a detailed description of my holiday.

Big Horn Falls — Ya Ha Tinda, Alberta, Canada

The Ya Ha Tinda is an awesome hike, especially if you’re me and LOVE waterfalls. It’s a tradition in my family to go the Ya Ha Tinda in the summer have a picnic and make the hike to the waterfalls. This place is special to my family because my Great Grandpa helped to make the road you travel along to the Ya Ha Tinda.

The drive to the Ya Ha Tinda is just as great as the hike. The roads are windy, the forest is lush and green, you always happen to see some kind of wild animals (we have seen wild horses and mountain goats!). The road you take to get there is a dirt road, so be prepared for a bumpy/dusty ride ๐Ÿ˜‰

Grassi Lakes, Canmore, Alberta

As with my last post, aboutย Grotto Canyon, Grassi Lakes is a hike that I love to do at least once per summer. As I mentioned in a lot of my posts I love waterfallsย and Grassi lakes has a wonderful waterfall and other bodies of water to photograph.

IMG_3135Grassi Lakes is a hike I love because you can take one trail to the lake and another one back to the parking lot. I get bored of seeing the same things over and over, so it’s nice to change it up.

My mom and I prefer to take the harder trail to the lake (this is where you get a great view of the waterfall) and the easier trail to go back to the car. This hike took us a few hours total, mostly because I stop a LOT to take photos thus slowing us down…hahaha.ย IMG_3104

The reason I love this hike is because the water looks so magical and there are endless opportunities for photos. I can’t wait to go back this summer with my new lens. I took these photos in 2015 so my camera skills were not as great as they are now, but I still like them!

Grotto Canyon, Exshaw, Alberta, Canada

One of my favourite hikes in the summer orย winter is Grotto Canyon. Every season I try to come here at least once.

In the winter, it’s such a unique experience as the waterfalls are frozen and the walkway is complete ice. It is best to bring cramp-ons so that you do not end up sliding all over the place.
