Peter Lougheed Provincial Park

This past weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to go for a nice Sunday drive with my friend Brenda. Brenda and I met just over a year ago on a Grizzly Bear Tour done by Classic Canadian Tours. I had the wonderful opportunity to go on this tour with my mom and happened to meet Brenda on the tour. I highly recommend Classic Canadian Tours for once in a lifetime handcrafted Canadian experiences. You can check out their tours on their website here. You can see my blog post about that trip here.

Since then we also went on another Classic Canadian Tours trip to see Polar bears in Churchill (also with my mom). You can see my blog post about that trip here:

Fast forward to last weekend when we decided to go for a drive in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park. We drove over 300 kilometers looking for wildlife, but unfortunately had no luck finding any wildlife. We did manage to get some fantastic landscape photos though. I was testing out a new camera, a Canon EOS R, to potentially replace my aging Canon 1DX, but the camera has some shortfalls so I will be hanging onto my Canon 1DX for the perceivable future.

After our road trip we stopped for a beer at Hard Knox Brewery in Black Diamond. I had a delicious IPA and Brenda had a Honey Brown Ale.

2017-11-05 Classic Canadian Tours – Polarbears in Churchill

Yesterday I had the opportunity to go on a trip of a lifetime with my mom. We took a chartered flight on a Canadian North Boeing 737-300 from Calgary to Churchill, Manitoba. The flight was 2 1/2 hours and during the flight we were served a hot breakfast and learned about Polarbears and what we would experience today. When we landed in Churchill we boarded school buses for a quick 15 minute drive to where the Tundra Buggy launch site was. We boarded the warm, cozy, and spacious Tundra Buggy’s and spent the rest of the day looking for Polarbears and other wildlife. We saw white, red, and silver foxes, a few bird species, and of course Polarbears. Lunch was served onboard the Tundra Buggies, a delicious home made vegetable soup with a selection of sandwiches; I chose Montreal smoked meat. It was starting to get dark at around 4pm, so we head back towards the Tundra Buggy launch site, boarded the school buses and drove into Churchill to explore the town for an hour before boarding the plane back home. On the flight home we were served chicken cordon bleu and a selection of spirits; I had red wine.
