  It’s open for the season and we’re at it again! Ptarmigan Cirque has been good to Nolan and I, it’s definitely a special spot for us. Our most recent adventure there was another one I just have to share! I am so proud of my boy! ❤ The day started out with his wind…

Kristina’s Adventure: Big Sister, June 18 2017

I have come to realize that mountain plans change just as fast as they are planned. Especially here in Alberta. If you’re unfamiliar with Alberta, our weather is extremely bio-polar. You can have all four seasons in the span of an hour! I am not kidding! That makes packing for adventures interesting and sometimes frustrating….

Mommy & Me Adventures: Rawson Lake June 11, 2017

Another weekend with my boy, another adventure to get going on! Originally we had planned to go to Ptarmigan Cirque, but the highway was not opened yet. Thankfully, because I didn’t check before we left – oops, the person we were going with suggested Rawson Lake. The turn off was right there and they knew the…

Adventure with Friends, Troll Falls Part 2 May 29, 2016

Troll Falls Part 2, Spring addition – last time we went it was winter and the falls were partially frozen. Quite beautiful but of course – you had to see it not frozen too! What I like about Troll Falls, is that, we were able to workout in the morning, grab lunch, and then head out…

Nolan takes the lead at Elbow Falls

It’s a Sunday morning and Nolan and I are coming out the other end of our colds that have lasted about a week and a half! We couldn’t sit at home anymore so we had a great big breakfast and headed to the gym for a workout! After the gym, it was so beautiful outside…

Mist Mountain

It was a last minute decision to take the week off work for a little stay-cation which turned into a lot of hiking and adventures. I was having a rough week so a friend of mine decided to take a few days off as well and take me on an adventure! We headed out on…

The Ridge

I feel like I still need a few days to take in all the excitement and feelings I felt this weekend. I still feel pretty speechless about the whole experience. I finally got out for my first BIG hike! We hiked, climbed, scrambled, fell, slipped, got burned by a plant, got cut up, got lost, and…
