Guys, I was watching Altered Carbon on Netflix (anyone else watch that?) Anyways, there was a dope scene on a bridge in a forest and I was like "wow that's incredible I wanna go there"
But then I realized
"HOLY SHIT I HAVE BEEN THERE. IVE BEEN ON THAT BRIDGE. IN THAT EXACT SPOT."
So here is a picture of me on that bridge, on what is STILL one of the most memorable days of my life.
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 🕊 Psalm 91 1-2 📸 @ricardomiller1993 Edit by me.
Just something beyond myself.
I call it "The door to heaven". It was late August, just before classes were starting up again. I got to experience one of the best summer getaways at a cottage up in Muskoka with my extended family. Never had I felt more free than on that lone kayak in the middle of the lake. Never had I ever gone biking in the rain with my sisters and been bitten so many times and survived my godmother's notorious horror stories while walking in the dark of night in tandem. What a blast. #AerxiaStoryTime
Stillness descends over Maligne Lake and Spirit Island after a stormy day of canoeing in which we had a mix of rain, hail, sunshine, and snow. Kodak used a picture of Spirit Island taken by Peter Gales as part of a showcase for Kodack Colorama, that was displayed prominently in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal in 1960. Kodack Colorama was leading the new phenomenon of consumer colour film at the time and since then the island has become one of the iconic vistas of the Canadian Rockies. The ‘island’ is in fact a small peninsula which is only cut off by water briefly after large spring snowmelts. We spent three days canoe camping around the lake, and the colour of the water in the southern end of the lake really needs to be seen to be believed.
Being one of the most popular back country trips in the Rockies, it can be notoriously difficult to book a camping spot on the lake. We were lucky that the ice melted off the lake a couple of weeks early this year and Parks Canada released an extra week of bookings which were previously withheld. We quickly booked at the last minute, and were amazingly the only people in the campsite near Spirit Island on the first night we camped. With the ice having only been off the lake for a week, we were able experience Spirit Island all to ourselves. The next morning as we paddled to explore the Sothern end of the lake we did not see another vessel.
Maligne Lake sits at an elevation of 1,675 metres (5,495 feet), and has a maximum depth of 97 metres (318 feet). The deep water temperatures in the lake never rise above 4°C (39°F) even at the peak of summer; so it’s not a lake you can afford to capsize your canoe in. This shot was taken just after sunset.

Rhododendrons make rainy days better ☔️🌸
Today wasn’t the best day as we got some car trouble and ended up having to leave our car at the garage and get a rental car while they fix it. I’m so proud of the girls who were well behaved and calm despite everything! Check out our stories for today’s adventures!
