I also enjoy the simple things like being able to stand up (my…

Heather Mountain Lodge BC – The Summer Experience

If you've driven the Trans-Canada Highway between Golden and Revelstoke, British Columbia then you've passed Heather Mountain Lodge & Cabins - but perhaps unknowingly. I know I've seen a sign pointing to heli-skiing in the winter but not once on the multiple times I've driven the Trans-Canada, did I clue into the fact that there was a beautiful lodge, just off the highway.

Wildflowers in abundance on the ski slopes in Rossland BC

Rossland BC – The Best Hotel to Sleep, Eat & Play

A visit to Rossland BC has been on my radar for years. While I didn't appreciate what a cute mountain town Rossland is until my summer visit, I did know that the town is a dream destination - albeit an out of the way one - for skiers. In fact it was at RED Mountain Resort where Nancy Greene, Canada's female athlete of the 20th century, cut her teeth skiing. The ski hill is well-known…

They’d recommend swimming, canoeing and kayaking since Canada’s most populous province is blessed with oodles of warm lakes and sparkling rivers. While cottagers and tourists flock to these popular destinations, a growing number are now seeking out Northern Ontario’s French River. French River - a Canadian Heritage…

Charcuterie plate at Mt Engadine Lodge

Mount Engadine Lodge Glamping Experience

I was already a fan of Mount Engadine Lodge before I tried their new glamping tents. I'd been to the lodge twice before. The first time I visited was on a winter trip before we'd even moved to Calgary where we lucked out with a weekend of live music. and the second in September a few years ago when we took my elderly mother-in-law, promising her moose sightings. "We" delivered with at least four moose…
