After taking a couple of weeks to ensure Sarah was OK with her massive Sequoia (try getting her out of it) We returned to the same dealership and traded in my little truck for this monster....well, you know what they say "when in Rome"
A few weeks ago Sarah and I walked Johnson Canyon but not the extended section to the 'Ink Pots' today I returned to complete the whole hike as a nice spring warm up. Click here for full story and pics.
Our first visit to this stunning part of Alberta, 3 hours south on the border with the US is an incredibly picturesque park, famed for it's windy days but breathtaking if you catch it when its calm...which we did. Click here for full story and pics
Anyone who knows me would know that seeing those bald eagles yesterday when I only had a short lens with me would drive me to distraction, and it did. So today I returned to Glenbow Ranch with the telephoto lens and captured some better shots of these magnificent creatures.....if you want to see LOTS of Bald Eagles click here.
I went out to visit a recent 'find' close to home, how I wish I had found this area sooner....I feel I've wasted a year. A fantastic prairie park and a wonderful encounter with a bald eagle protecting its nest. Click here for full story and pics.
With many long road trips planned, and family visits to facilitate, we decided it was time to find a bigger vehicle to enjoy. After much consideration we settled for a Toyota Sequoia, it is a truly cavernous monster with room for all the family and more. It is smooth, quiet and ridiculously large ....exactly what we were looking for and with the added bonus of being one of those things that we would never do at home. Many more road trips coming soon.
We arrived in Calgary, Canada on 29th December 2011 to continue our journey. This blog is intended to keep our family and friends informed whilst we explore Canada.You can use the RSS feed below to stay updated.
