Louise and her brother Rob have been training all summer for Ride the Rideau, a 100 km bike ride to raise money for cancer care and treatment at the Ottawa Hospital. They did the ride in memory of their father John (who passed away July 13th, 2012) and together they raised over $4,000. The grand total for the ride was over $2,000,000 which is nothing short of amazing!

On our last morning in Yellowstone I finally got around to making some images in the woods near our campsite.

One of my favorite things to see in the park was the wide open space between the trees in the forests and the short, bright green grass growing between. Sadly my pictures really don't do it justice, so you'll have to take my word for how beautiful it was.
After taking this picture we finished packing up … Continue Reading ››

On our third full day in Yellowstone we again decided to get up early and hit the highway instead of cooking breakfast.
