The Calgary Stampede

We were able to be a part of the 100th year anniversary of the Calgary Stampede.  Its hard to describe the Stampede--its like a fair, only better.  Like 100x better than any old fair.

So an Asian, a bald guy and a scruffy kid walk into a Stampede......

A few favs from Glacier National Park

So, even though we're home, I have yet to share pictures from Glacier.  I have a list of about 50 of my "favs"...but that would take way to long to upload.  So, I figured I needed to narrow it down a bit. 

Here are my absolute absolute favs from Glacier:
The road to the Going the Sun Road

St. Mary Lake

Logan's Pass...the Continental Divide

Lake McDonald

Driving through Canada

After we rode in Kelowna, British Columbia, we spent the night in Kamloops, BC.  From Kamloops, we drove 9ish hours to Grande Prairie, Alberta (to ride the second northern-most flowrider---it was a single, but still pretty cool).  Anyway, here are some of the beautiful views along the way...

Cannon Beach 2.0

I love Cannon Beach, Oregon!  Yes, we went there last year because its the beach where the movie The Goonies was filmed, but it was so pretty, we had to go back!

We hiked down this little goat path to the beach this year, rather than going a different way.  It was quite an adventure, but well worth it!  We got there about sunset, and it was just gorgeous.  If it was sunny and nice most of the time (unlike the normal Pacific northwest weather), I'd move there in a heartbeat.

Rewind: Mount St. Helens

Last Sunday, we went to Mount St. Helens with our friend, Brad.  Mount St. Helens is an active volcano that is about 100 south of Seattle.  The biggest eruption happened in 1980, and you can still see remnants of it today. 

 For more info about Mount St. Helens, here is the wikipedia link.
