My soul absolutely sings when I get out on the highway, YYC in the rearview mirror and the mountains straight ahead. Although I love Calgary, and would certainly say I call it home here, BC will always have my heart. It also helps that the drive through the mountains, Rogers Pass and into the Okanagan is one of my favourites.
I head to Vernon, BC, every few months. This time though, returning to the house I grew up in as my mom is back in the Okanagan. It felt great to be back in the house! The four days went by so quick. Lots of great family time, laughs with friends, hugs from their munchkins and of course a few nights on town.
The trip wouldn’t have been complete if I didn’t make it out to the country for some fresh air as well. Went to visit friends and their babies at Route 6 Campground – highly recommend it! Owned by a fantastic family I know.
I decided to finally check out Revelstoke Ski Mountain on my way back to Calgary. I lucked out, it was perfect spring skiing conditions. Sun shinning, fresh snow, groomed runs and a mountain to myself. I can see why this mountain is for the experienced, you find yourself cliff side 80% of the runs. Solo board trips are beginning to be my favourite activity! Too bad this was my last ride of the season, great way to end it though!
Driving home I took several stops to photos. Since my backpacking adventure I have learnt to take a moment to appreciate my journey. Certainly not taking Canada for granted anymore.
