Hiking Turtle Mountain in Crowsnest Pass, AB


I drive past Frank Slide on my way to Seattle and I have played a month rocks and visited the interpretive centre. Yesterday, through some work colleagues I had the opportunity to look down on Frank Slide from the top of Turtle Mountain. Crowsnest Pass can be tricky to manoeuvre because trail heads are not clearly marked but the trailehead…

Day Hikes Within 2 Hours of Lethbridge


The long weekend is upon us and the weather SUCKS. Ryan and I were prepared for this, we booked a hotel room in Fernie for the long weekend because we knew rain or snow was likely and we wanted a warm bed and hot shower if we were going to be out playing in the rain. For the Lethbians (unofficial…

Apollo’s First Hike, Wishbone Trail


Yesterday I took Apollo on his first hike in Waterton. Because he is only about 8 weeks old I chose to hike the Wishbone Trail because it’s flat with gorgeous views.

This past weekend adventures in Crowsnest Pass was the perfect opportunity to stop and find out what this was about. Here are the basic facts you need…

Lundbreck Falls, Alberta


I was lucky enough to road trip back to Alberta from Washington with my little brother Ben after his graduation. Just as we were leaving the Crowsnest Pass I saw the sign for Lundbreck Falls and asked him if we wanted to make a quick pit stop though we were less than two hours from home. When you pull off…
