The Hazelwood Herb Farm, Ladysmith, BC Canada

I went out to the hazel wood,

Because a fire was in my head,

And caught a little silver trout.

Vacation Destination: Canada’s Western National Parks

We watched in dismay, the dark clouds massing at an alarming rate above the granite peaks of the Canadian Rockies in Jasper National Park. An afternoon rain shower was brewing, and it was going to start pouring before we could return to our campsite on the Kicking Horse River.

Fortunately, Canada’s western parks have a strict bare camp policy due to the presence of grizzly bears, meaning that almost everything has to be stowed away before leaving camp. There was nothing laying around our site that could be damaged by rain, so we decided not to worry about the change in More >
