And in less than a month I'll be visiting the Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve for the first time. It's located in the Gulf of…

I love Canada's national parks and seek them out when I travel. I have a dream of seeing them all but the northern ones are expensive to access and the weather window is short to visit. We'll see how far I get!

What are the 10 most popular National Parks in Canada? I happened upon an article in Canadian Geographic magazine and found statistics related to National Park visits to be quite interesting. They were a few years old so I went off in search of the latest stats. The top place holders were no surprise - Banff and Jasper National Parks but none of the other National Parks in Canada come even close to those numbers . Visits…

What you can do on a Trip to Death Valley National Park

Death Valley National Park in California is a land of extremes. It's the hottest, driest and lowest US National Park. But it's for exactly these reasons that its worth a visit. Death Valley holds the record in the Western hemisphere for the hottest reliably reported temperature at 134°F (56.7°C) at Furnace Creek in July of 1913. One cause is low elevation but the valley is enclosed by mountains which prevent the hot air from escaping.…
