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 πŸ˜‰

Ram Falls — My Saturday Adventure

Now that school is coming to a close and I was able to get most of my homework done last week, so I was able to take a break this Saturday. My mom and I went for a drive out in the country and visited Ram Falls. It was nice just to get out. I had a lot of fun and even saw wild horses for the first time!

Cold War Bunker!

DuringΒ summer 2016 my mom, my friend, and of course myself went for a hike that we had found about through some research. As I mentioned in my post about waterfallsΒ I prefer hikes where we have a goal in mind (i.e. making it to a waterfall or in this case … a Cold War Bunker!). I don’t like to just wander aimlessly in the woods, I like to know that I am going places.

Banff and Lake Louise, Alberta

As most students would agree, during school you have little to no time to get out and explore. Weekends are normally filled with assignments, readings, studying, etc. Even though this may be the case, over the past four years I have learned that it is important, even necessary, to get away from the work and the stress of life.
