We went for a winter hike along the Heart Creek Trail near Canmore with some friends. It was a pretty winter day and the hike was great. The hike is not long and we easily made it to the end of the trail at the top of the valley. Although there is a waterfall at the top, it is not accessible and we couldn't see it. It seems like it might be possible to get to it later in the winter if the whole creek freezes. We might have to go back after a major cold snap to have a better look...
We went for a nice walk along the Heart Creek Trail on Thanksgiving weekend. Louise's mom and Sister were in town (with little Baby Zoe) and we all needed to get out of the house. A trip out to the mountains was definitely in order. It is a very pretty hike and it was a beautiful fall day!
I borrowed a lens from Canon for the weekend because I wanted to test it out (* more about that at the end for those of you that care) and so I decided to make a stop at Nose Hill Park in Calgary today with the kids. I've been working some really crazy hours lately trying to get caught up on all of the projects I've got going and it was really nice to actually have some time to take a break! The weather was pretty perfect for photography. It was a little bit sunny and a … Continue Reading ››
I've wanted to visit Yellowstone National Park for years (as long as I can remember really) and Louise and I have often talked about going there. Every time it came up we ended up deciding that it was a little bit too far away and too ambitious a trip. But when we had some unplanned vacation time to use up this summer, and when Louise kept telling me that she wanted to do more camping this year, the conversations kept returning to Yellowstone. We finally decided to just do it. Uncharacteristically for us, we made the decision little more than a week in advance, … Continue Reading ››
We went camping at Waterton Lakes National Park for the Canada Day long weekend. We had never been there before but we went with Rich and Patti (and Keiran and Brenna) who had, and so we had some help figuring out where to go. They suggested a very nice campground and they had a list of kid friendly hikes that we could all do. Although the park is in the Rockies, the terrain is surprisingly different than we see in the Mountain Parks closer to Calgary. The wildflowers were in full bloom for our visit and so it was a great time of year to be there! The one … Continue Reading ››
