In beautiful Jasper, Alberta

I’m visiting my good friend Gillian MacDonald here in beautiful Jasper, Alberta.  She’s been living here for a few years… and she loves it here.  I was taking my Wilderness First Responder course in Whitefish Montana from May 17-21st and realized that I was only a few hours away from Jasper.  I asked Gill if I could come and visit for the weekend and she was very happy to have me.   Today – May 24th – I took the Tram up Whistler Mountain and I hiked to the peek.  Jasper is a special place and the Tram is an easy way to get up high and get an amazing perspective of the little town nestled in the rocky mountains.  I took a few photos and I took a self portrait of myself using a 10 second timer on a rock.  It was pretty neat to go up on my own and for only a few moments I had the mountains to myself.  It was incredible.

Newfoundland Adventure

My friend Zack came to visit Newfoundland for his first time ever. We decided to make it a fun trip! We organized a road trip to St. Johns and everything else fell into place. We had a couch surfing party, went hiking Signal Hill, sight seeing at Cape Spear, live music on George Street, hiking in Gros Morne National Park, sight seeing at Salvage and little fishing villages along the coast and also got to meet the Olympic torch lady… We had an awesome trip Nov 12-18th 2009 in Newfoundland, Canada. See slideshow below…

Kayaking in Newfoundland, Canada

I’ve had some great experiences kayaking in Newfoundland.  I snapped this shot while out in a double kayak with Bob from Gros Morne Adventures.  We went out paddling with a group and my job was to take photos.  It was a calm and sunny day on Bonne Bay.  Two of the sea kayak guides stopped paddling because we saw some minke whales in the distance.  They are looking to see if the whales will come up again…
