We headed north on a weekend from Lake Louise along the Icefields Parkway to hit the trail to two gems: Folding Mountain + Allstones Lake to revel in a sunset view of the prairies turning into mountains and a lake with campsites from a dream.
Spring is here and that means dusting off the ol' hiking boots and putting the skis away 'til next year! We spent this winter season exploring the many unique huts, yurts and cabins our province has to offer! Our Hike365 members and ambassadors experienced it all - from the self-catered, to the luxurious. Whether it was a drive up, or a hike in, each place brought us a different experience and one more reason to love traveling within Alberta.
Everyone loves those quiet back country moments away from the city, but finding the time to get there can be challenging! We were given an opportunity to stay in the Engadine Lodge Yurt on a chilly Friday night in February.
When most people imagine a destination wedding, the first image that comes to mind is probably palm trees or a white sand beach. For mountain enthusiasts, however, the setting of this autumn wedding in the Canadian Rockies was an absolute dream! I had the privilege of witnessing two friends say their vows amidst the majestic mountains and lakes of Waterton Lakes National Park.
Lush forest, vibrant lakes, massive waterfalls, glowing golden larches, and over 80 km of trails – Lake O’Hara is something out of a dream. Every step I took in this beautiful park left me in awe. Not even 3-days wandering around this magnificent place is enough to take in all its beauty.
August's hike was an amazing and beautiful experience for all of us who participated! With distance of 23.8km and a total elevation gain of 760m this was a great full day adventure indeed!
