Snow Shoeing

I had the opportunity to go snow shoeing last weekend with my father. I hadn’t ever gone snow shoeing before, but the conditions that weekend were perfect. The snow was ~60cm deep on average, the sun was shining, it was a long weekend, there was almost nobody on the trails, and I got to spend the day with my dad.

My dad and I get to travel every year, and we used to go hiking quite a bit, but with my busy schedule we have not really been able to go hiking or explore our own country much in the last few years. This was such a fantastic day. We’re both going to be travelling for the next few weeks but perhaps when we’re both back in the country again we shall go again.

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.

June 4th 2016 – Bourgeau Hike

Today I went for a hike to Bourgeau Lake with a colleague of mine from work. The trail wasn’t very busy, but it was a little muddy towards the top. The trail is switchback after switchback, getting more difficult the closer you get to the lake. The last 300 metres of the 725 metre elevation gain occurs in the last 1.75 km of the trail.

When we got to the lake we relaxed and had our lunch, and were watching Pika’s try to steal food from my backpack, and the backpacks from other hikers. After lunch we climbed up a bit further to see a slightly better view of the lake. I was absolutely blown away by the sheer beauty of the glacial fed lake. The colours were so vibrant!
