Let’s Go to Canada

Continuing the theme of lakes and wonderful national parks, we drove north to Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta. Waterton and Glacier are best friends. Officially, they make up Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. If you have a passport, it’s an easy trip from the Many Glacier area. The town of Waterton is incredibly cute and has lots of camping, motel, and hotel options. We enjoyed the Bear Mountain Motel.

Clockwise from the top left: Waiting for teatime, Red Rock Canyon, Blakiston Falls, A BABY BEAR, Prince of Wales Hotel, delicious deserts at the Prince of Wales Tea.

Waterton was the perfect, quirky place to end the second leg of this road trip. From gourmet hot dogs at Wieners of Waterton, to a delightful community theater production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, to BEAR sightings, it really has it all. Big thanks to Natalie for being a great co-captain and taking pictures of wildlife and roadside oddities throughout the trip.

Clockwise from top left: Wieners (yes, I have the t-shirt), Teenie Weenie Theater Company, Sorry No Vacancy, a dinosaur in Choteau, Joseph, rough roads, and buffalo.

Adventure Time!

Welcome to my blog!

On Tuesday, August 23rd I’m starting a great adventure.  I’ll be traveling through Russia and Mongolia on the Trans-Siberian Railway, trekking in Nepal, and exploring Thailand, New Zealand and Australia – all before the end of the year!  In the spring, I hope to walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain and wander through Italy and Greece, among other destinations.

My goal is to spend as much time as possible on foot, trains and bikes.  And through all of this, I’d like to use this blog to share my journey with you.  Enter your email on the right sidebar if you’d like to be notified of new posts, or stop by the homepage to check for updates.  You can also reach me on twitter and email.

Check out the slideshow below featuring my dad and two very different-sized Annas.  I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to indulge my (genetic) travel bug.  See you in Moscow!
