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 😊

Day 6: Kangaroo Creek Farm

Have you ever wanted to hold a baby kangaroo or wallaby? What about hold a sugar glider? Pet a capybara? Well, do I have a place for you! In my last post I talked about my first couple of days in Penticton. I decided to skip ahead to my last day since I was super excited to tell you about this amazing place!

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.

Emerald Lake Hike & Natural Land Bridge, Yoho National Park, BC

For my mom’s birthday, on July 15, she really wanted to hike around Emerald Lake. We had never been before and I was quite excited to photograph the blue water! The weekend before we had done the hike to Laughing Falls, so it seems we were on the theme of Yoho National Park!  (more…)

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.

Hell’s Gate, British Columbia

In the summer of 2015 my mom, my friend, and I drove out from Calgary, Alberta to White Rock, British Columbia. We made a few stops along the way and one of them was to Hell’s Gate Airtram . This was a unique experience and would definitely recommend stopping, if you are willing to go a bit our of your way.

The sign at the beginning says,

“A man’s legacy: The early explorer Simon Fraser documented his death defying journey to the Pacific Ocean. This section of the Fraser River over 1000 feet below you was compared in Simon’s journal to ‘the gates of hell’ because of its thundering rapids and terrifying white water. Historians now refer to this area as Hell’s Gate.”

Reading Week (February 2016): Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Since I just started my site in March 2017, I have a lot of  past ‘adventures’ to post about. This year for reading week I spent most of my time hanging out with friends and family close to home, so I thought I would post some photos from last year’s reading week.

Back where I started

**This is a post from my old blog on TravelPod, but I have imported the content to my new blog!**

Hello everyone! As I write this post I am so FROZEN! Just the other day I was in a place where it what 30 degrees Celsius and now, as I type this, it is minus 23. My mom told me that the whole time I was gone it did not snow, but the night I got home of course it had to snow and I am the designated sidewalk cleaner. (more…)
