Sulphur Mountain Hike

Last weekend I went on a wonderful hike up Sulphur Mountain in Banff National Park with my friend Hadrian Robinson. It’s a moderate hike with 744 metres of elevation gain and 11km round-trip. The weather was perfect and we couldn’t have had a better day. Check out Hadrian’s wonderful photography on his Instagram account @hadrianrobinsonphotography. Here’s some of my photos from our hike!

Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary

A few day’s ago I took my mom to the Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary. It was a very late Christmas present because we had both been busy or unavailable during the first half of the year.

The sanctuary was started in June 2011 by Georgina De Caigny and Andi Scheibenstock because they recognized a need for a knowledgeable and experienced rescue organization that would make the rehabilitation and rehoming of displaced wolfdogs a priority. It’s one of the largest sanctuaries within Canada. The sanctuary is currently home to 23 wolfdogs.

I highly recommend visiting the sanctuary if you want to learn more about wolfdogs, see some super cute wolfdogs, and support the non-profit sanctuary. The website for the sanctuary isĀ yamnuskawolfdogsanctuary.com

Larch Valley Hike

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go on a beautiful hike near Moraine Lake with my friend Sara. The hike is called Larch Valley. The drive from Calgary was about 1.75 Hours to the overflow parking lot near lake louse. We had to wait there for about an hour to catch a Government of Canada chartered bus up to Morraine Lake. The hike is about a 2 hour journey to the valley up a bunch of steep switchbacks, but the view is definitely worth it. Going down took a mere 45 minutes. This is one of my favorite hikes that I have ever done.

2017-08-19 Edmonton Air Show

Yesterday I travelled up to Edmonton with my friend Hadrian to visit the 3rd annual Edmonton Air Show. There were some amazing airplanes and pilots there, including a 75 year old stunt pilot (Gary Ward), De Havilland DH-115 Vampire, and the snowbirds presented the finale. Enjoy the photos below.

Quebec & Montreal

The week after returning from my Boston & New York trip I had the opportunity to go on a trip to Quebec & Montreal for my birthday. Work was a bit slow still and I approached my boss and asked if I could go away for another week, and he said go for it. I found a steal of a deal for $700 for flights to/from YYC to YUL (Air Canada), hotels in both Quebec and Montreal, and Via rail to/from Quebec/Montreal. Not bad for easter weekend!

I was blown away by the sheer beauty of Quebec and Montreal. I’ve been wanting to go here for years but hadn’t got around to it.

In Montreal I met up with my friend Myriam, who I had met earlier this year on my trip to Hawaii. We had some of the most amazing poutine I’ve ever had in my life! I even met some new friends while at a brewery in Montreal, who I still maintain contact with. One of them even lives here in Calgary.

Take a look at my pictures below and see the amazing beauty of both these amazing cities.

New York & Boston Part 2 of 2

After visiting New York I took a Delta flight on a Maddog (MD-88) over to Boston. Boston is a beautiful colonial city with a ton of amazing architecture and history. It’s also one of the most educated cities in the United States. Some of my favorite photos’ are shown below. After Boston I had some troubles catching my flight back to New York (La Guardia), due to weather, so I could catch my flight from JFK to Calgary, but Delta was able to re-accommodate me to fly directly into JFK, which was a huge life saver. Thank you Delta!

New York & Boston Part 1 of 2

In April I had to opportunity to take a trip to New York & Boston. Work was a little slow that week so I decided to take the opportunity to fly out to New York & Boston. I ended up getting a Return Ticket from YYC directly into JFK for only $332 with WestJet in Economy Plus.

I spent a total of two days in New York. For some reason I had a huge difficulty sleeping in the AirBNB I was staying at because it was so warm, so I had an early start each day, which allowed me to see a lot. Some highlights of New York were visiting the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the finance District, Chinatown, Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn and Brooklyn Bridge, East Village, Harlem, and The High Line. I didn’t have the opportunity to go on top of any of the towers there as I didn’t book the tickets enough in advance. When I was there I even got to meetup with the sister and husband of a friend that I used to work with at a previous employer. We had so much delicious food including Vietnamese and Pizza, as well as some of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had in my life. The east coast definitely knows how to make a great IPA!

I’ve included some pictures of my New York trip below. Check back soon for Part 2!
