Bald Hills in Jasper National Park

This view is the #1 reason we decided to hike the Bald Hills in Jasper National Park. Once you get to the top, you overlook the whole valley holding Maligne Lake. The colors of both the mountains and lake are absolutely stunning. As gorgeous as this view is, I still don't entirely recommend this hike depending on your particular trip ...

Emerald Lake in Yoho National Park

Emerald Lake is a great place to spend a few hours exploring! It's beyond picturesque, and it also makes for a great rest day in between hikes. We had just hiked the Iceline Trail and Takakkaw Falls the day before, and we were pretty beat. So before making a beeline for the coast, we decided to make a stop at ...

Lake Moraine – Banff National Park

Moraine Lake is one of the most photographed lakes in all of Canada. It's situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks in the Lake Louise area of Banff National Park. The scenery is absolutely incredible, and the color of the lake is more vibrant than any other glacier fed lake I've seen. Depending on the time of day you're ...

Iceline Trail in Yoho National Park

The Iceline Trail in Yoho National Park is such a fantastic hike, it's hard to know where to even begin! We wanted to get in to see the famous Lake O'Hara, and do some of the hikes in that area, but as you might know that area is difficult to get in to. We tried to see if we could ...

Wilcox Pass and Summit Scramble

Wilcox Pass is one of our all time favorite hiking adventures! The views are nothing short of breathtaking, especially since it's only rated a moderate grade hike with 7.5 miles roundtrip. You look across the valley at massive glaciers that are so beautiful, you'll keep stopping along the way to have another look, or take a million photos in my ...

Takakkaw Falls in Yoho National Park

There are certain experiences in life that stand out in vivid memory, and the day we hiked Takakkaw Falls in Yoho National Park was just such a day. Everything lined up perfectly with amazing weather, great food, awesome company, and scenery that just wouldn't quit. We started the day early with coffee and breakfast while watching and listening to the ...

Meares Island Sea Kayaking Adventure

We've been wanting to go sea kayaking for a while, so it seemed like the natural thing to do when we finally made it to the ocean on our road trip. We decided to just take our iPhones along on our Meares Island Sea Kayaking Adventure because we wanted to enjoy the day without spending every single second freaking out ...

Devil’s Thumb Scramble in Banff National Park

The Devil's Thumb Scramble starts from the popular hike to the beehive above the Lake Agnes Teahouse in Banff National Park. There are several phenomenal hikes you can do in this area, and all of them offer great views. The first time we spent some time in Banff we did both the Plain of Six Glaciers Teahouse and the Lake ...

Cavell Meadows Trail

We had the most magical morning for the Cavell Meadows Hike. The clouds were lifting between storms, and everywhere you looked the views were like a fairy tail. We tried to do this hike several years ago, but due to bad weather we didn't make it. The trail is often closed until the first part of July to protect the ...
