Warm Winter Hike From Waterton to Glacier


On Friday I snuck over the U.S. border. There's no wall yet! Ha ha ha. Sorry, that's my lame attempt at a little political humor. But I did go hiking on the Goat Haunt trail that travels along Waterton Lakes, into the United States to an outpost called Goat Haunt, though I didn't quite make it all the way. If you…

Homework and Hiking- Bears Hump & Linnet Lake


I think I've figure out a way to balance life a bit! At least for the next three weeks until I start student teaching and then I'll have to adjust to a whole new schedule again. In class last week we spent some time discussing how we were feeling in the top four areas of wellness; physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.…

Honoured to be Part of the A-Team


I was pretty stoked when I ran into Blakiston & Company owner Mike and he told me he wanted me to join a team of brand ambassadors known as the A-Team! Waterton Lakes National park is a small community and if you work there or visit enough you'll get to know everyone and I love going and chatting people up.…

Fall Mountain Biking on the Wishbone Trail


All that hard work last week doing homework paid off because I was completely done it all by Saturday afternoon and was able to head to the mountains on Sunday with Rachelle with a carefree mind. Last weekend was amazing weather wise, the perfect warm sunny fall day and I as she was on her way to my place, I…

Hiking the Carthew Alderson Trail


Prepare yourself readers, this post has 31 photos. On Labour Day, my friend Samara and I headed to Waterton despite the rain clouds to hike Carthew Alderson, a 20 km one way hike that requires a shuttle to the start at Cameron Lake. This was the last hike Samara needed to get the Triple Crown! I've been hiking in Waterton…

Goat Lake with a Side of Scrambling


There is nothing I love more than a day in the mountains! Over the weekend I met up with a gal I used to coach to go hiking in Waterton. We originally planned to go paddle boarding but it was so cold and overcast when we first pulled into town that we opted to head up to Red Rock Canyon…

Hiking to and around Bertha Lake


On Saturday I finally met up with an internet friend (Hi Melanie!) and we headed to Waterton to hike to Bertha Lake. Melanie isn't from here and had only been to Waterton a handful of times so I loved having the chance to play tour guide and watching someone appreciate the place as much as I do. We started off at…

Girls Day Out! Paddleboarding and Canyon Exploring


Nothing makes you feel more young and carefree than a day with your girlfriends. Fed up with work, bills, and life I arranged a girls day out in Waterton for my friends to find sitters so we could pretend we were teenagers. But alas, illness and family commitments kept two of the four of us away, but Cat and I headed…

Hiking to Mt. Vimy Peak & Biking in a Hailstorm


I was so happy when my cousin Adam emailed me about hiking to the peak of Mt.Vimy on his most recent visit to Alberta. The first time I hiked this peak was in 2011 with Adam and his brother Quinton and I was carrying almost 25 extra pounds of bodyweight and was in terrible shape back then. I was super excited to do…

Waterton Afternoon with Kiddos


Even though I should have been studying for my Canadian History final, I took off to Waterton for a day with Cat and her kids Olive (4) & Kevin (1.5). It was overcast in the prairies so I brought several changes of clothes because you never know what to expect in Waterton and yesterday it was windy- surprise! surprise! Cat promised…

2nd Annual Waterton Food Festival


I always thought my stomach was bottomless but this week on a tour of the 2nd Annual Waterton Food Festival I learned that even my stomach has a limit. I had THE BEST time on Thursday and had the opportunity to view Waterton through a whole new lens- the food lens! The Waterton Food Festival kicked off on Friday, May…

A Clear Winter Day at Cameron Lake


While Saturday, March 19 wound up being a very hard and sad day the morning of was absolutely wonderful. I finally was able to see Cameron Lake in the winter without cloud cover! Any time I have gone there has been low cloud cover or it's been snowing so I never got a clear day on the lake until this trip.…

Winter Hike to Bertha Bay


I would hardly call the easy 5km to Bertha Bay a hike but walking in the mountains is walking in the mountains! I had last week off from school (Reading Week) and while my classmates jetted off to Vegas or relaxed at home with their parent's I went and booked a full time gig working at a day camp at…

Snowshoeing to a Frozen Forum Falls


It's the most wonderful time of the year! And I'm not talking about Christmas- I'm talking about winter! See, as a December baby I feel that snow runs in my veins which is why I get so energized when I'm out in it. From November- February I am a happy little snow bunny but as soon as it's March I'm…

November Hike to Crandell Lake


I knew that I needed some serious mountain time this past weekend so I got Ryan on board to hit Waterton and do a little snow chasing. Little did I know, there was no snow in Waterton this weekend and it was so crazy warm you would think it was April and not mid-November. I love/hate it because a late…

Thanksgiving 2015 Weekend Recap


Happy Tuesday everyone! Who's as tired as I am? Lucky for me, I take off for Mexico this Friday! Who-hoo! To my Canadian friends, hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! Mine started off blah because I had to spend Saturday from about 11-4 doing homework and the entire evening cleaning the house for Thanksgiving. SUNDAY I spent Sunday…
