Happy Monday eveyone👐 As promised, part 2 of my blog is out now from the trip to Banff (link in bio). Can't believe how many funny moments and beautiful scenery of Two Jack Lake, the abandoned ghost mining town called Bankhead, and waterfalls from Johnston Canyon we got to experience. Let's not forget the third musketeer who joined the adventure @christopherjmoney.
We all had great laughs, crazy adrenaline rushes while climbing through places to take pictures of waterfalls, and so much more.
You'll get to see these unforgettable moments on the vlog I'll be posting soon as well.

Went for a snowshoe up part of Buller Mountain last weekend for some views. Clouded over right when we got to the ridge, then cleared up right when we got back to the valley bottom. Tough luck sometimes but made the most of it. #explorecanada#snowshoe#rockymountains
So I’m putting the camera down for a while. Six months in, and I think it’s high time to give it a rest, recollect, re-evaluate, and go through the thousands of images I’ve taken across the North West and the Rockies with a critical eye.
Just kidding, that’s actually a load of bs. It’s really because I am officially broke. 😢
In the meantime I am also finding the whole employment process in Calgary a little depressing but I’m not giving up just yet. Who would have thought, eh?
Good things are surely coming in 2019 that will allow me to get back on the road to tick off a few US National Parks and states off my list (looking at you, Dakotas)
So that’s it for now - enjoy the throwback posts coming your way. This one was taken late in June.
BC how you so beautiful 😍
Brandywine Falls is a surreal waterfall hike that's only a hour drive from Vancouver 🚗 You can hike to the base of the falls for an up and personal encounter and it'll take around 45 minutes to an hour round trip, just make sure to be careful because the trail isn't super well marked 🌊 If you don't have time to hike down, you can still see the waterfall from the viewing platform that is only a 5 minute walk from the parking lot 👣
We didn't have the chance to go hiking the last 2 weeks because of our tight schedule and the fact that I was sick today :( Here is a picture of our last hike. Can you spot me at the bottom left of the picture (struggling to climb the last few meters and surely cursing 😂)?
I learned today that when my great grandmother immigrated from Scotland to Canada at the age of 17, she entered the country via Pier 21. Walking through the halls of the building I had so many questions. Why did she choose Canada? What did she bring in her suitcase? Why did she decide to settle in Alberta? How did she find/develop a community for herself in a foreign land? What brought her comfort when she felt homesick? I encourage you to have conversations with your family members and document their stories. Preserve them on something other than social media. Future generations will thank you.
18.000 years ago, this was covered with an ice layer of three to four kilometers high. As the glacier moved to the ocean it went over this. It shaped an abrupt cliff on the side of the Cap Trinité as it went down the water and shaped a smoother angle as it climbed the side on this picture, the Cap Éternité.
