Wasa Lake Provincial Park - British Columbia

We headed out of Canmore early to find ourselves with a bit of drizzle coming down. This meant our quick trip through Banff would be a bit overcast but that was fine with us. The roads were almost empty, the mountains had an eerie look with low clouds, and we spotted a bit of wildlife here and there along with …

On our way we passed the lovely agriculture and farming …

Beauvais Lake Provinical Park Alberta

We love this park. It is a bit out of way for our journey but well worth it. The drive to the park is stunning with gorgeous mountain views all the way to Waterton Lakes. Since August long weekend in Canada is coming up (first weekend in August) it means many of the campgrounds are crowded and/or full. So when …
