After Red Deer, we drove out of the snow to Maple Creek, then to Regina. We spent the last days together just hanging on the couch, meeting some friends, visiting a few museums and having a picnic at Buffalo Pound, where we also saw a moose! I was hard to say goodbye again to Miranda! A vacation to never forget <3

Snow, Red Deer

Waking up to SNOW! Instead of the scenic route, we get the hell out of the mountains and take the highway to Edmonton and then Red Deer, where we are meeting up for the first time with Marjolein and Menno. That was awesome! 🙂

Jasper, Maligne Lake, Bighorn Sheep And A Bear!

Yesterday we took the tramway up the Whistlers Mountain where the views were fantastic! We also drove to the Athabasca Falls and today we took the Maligne Lake Road to hopefully see some wildlife. Well, a lot of bighorn sheep and one bear! Woohoo!

Lake Louise & Moraine, Icefields Parkway

A very busy day! We visited Lake Louise and (very quick as there was no parking spot) Moraine Lake, then went on the Icefields Parkway to Jasper. We stopped at Bow Lake, the Big Bend viewpoint and the Sunwapta Falls before we parked for the night at the Whistlers campground near Jasper, where we saw our first elk!

Banff, Johnston Canyon, Lake Louise Campground

The next day was sunny, so we took the bus to Banff for some shopping. Today we took the Bow Valley Parkway to Johnston Canyon, where we hiked to the Upper Falls. We also stopped at Morant’s Curve, where we could get some classic shots of that scenery with a train passing by! Right now we’ve settled in on the beautiful Lake Louise campground.

Miranda On Vacation With Us!

We started our vacation on the 30th, driving to Calgary to pick up our Dutch friend Miranda! We stayed in Maple Creek for the first night and after picking up Miranda, we stayed on the campground near the Olympic Park in Calgary.
We drove to Banff and on our way we visited Canmore, Lake Minnewanka and Two Jack Lake. Today it’s rainy and we’re taking a rest day at the Tunnel Mountain campground!
