On this part of our Canadian adventure, I will take you through our southern drive down the Icefields Parkway. You might be asking yourself "Well, you've already written about when you went north, why would you do anot...

So after visiting the Athabasca Glacier, we got back on the Icefields Parkway and headed south for the hotel. I told Jessica that it was only 10:30am and I had another adventure on my mind. I told her the place we were...

You might recall, in my last blog, we drove up the stunning Icefields Parkway and ended it with us arriving at the Athabasca Glacier. This glacier is the most visited glacier in North America, so I knew it was going to...

After our first hike in Canada, I was beyond excited for what the rest of the vacation had in store for us. When we got back from the hike, we showered, then ventured over to the hot tub to enjoy some hydrotherapy. Aft...

So the day was finally here. Our first day to go out and hike!! We were both so excited to go out and explore what western Canada had to offer. Our first destination was West Wind Pass. A nice, gentle hike that leads y...

Excited. It's a feeling that is truly understood by all. When someone is excited, they are usually explaining a beautiful moment or event and you can picture it and share that feeling right along with them. When drivin...

The goal of my blog was to go in order of how I completed my hikes, but I've been thinking about Canada a lot lately so I decided to skip some of my Catskill hikes and jump right into our Canadian adventure. Don't worr...

This was a very special hike. I had been eyeballing this place for a long time. One thing I love to do, is go onto google maps or satellite maps and check out the photos that the satellites took recently of earth. Some...

Now, if you want a true bushwhack hike, Fir and Big Indian are a good start. Especially in the middle of summer. Everything is in full bloom and the herd paths are usually covered by either the massive, beautiful ferns...

My friend John is looking to complete the 3500 list. I decided to take him, his friend Geoff and Travis on an easy hike. Our objective would be two mountains today. We will be climbing up Balsam Mountain then back down...

To join the Catskill 3500 club, you have to do nine bushwhack hikes. A bushwhack, in hiking terms, means you have no trail. You must navigate to the top, either by electronic device(GPS locator or cell phone), using a...

Now, I've already done Wittenberg Mountain(as you can see in the title) so this blog will be mostly pictures. The last time I went up Wittenberg was in the fall, when the leaves were off the trees. So this would be a w...

So the week before, I had climbed North Dome Mountain. I was planning on doing both North Dome and Sherrill with Travis, but he backed out the night before. Well wouldn't you know it, Travis is back asking if I could d...

I was planning on doing North Dome and Sherrill with Travis, but he backed out the night before and I thought about doing something else. I decided to stick with the plan and do them by myself. Screw Travis!! :-)...

I had done Rusk Mountain the previous summer by myself. That was before Travis had joined me and my hiking adventures in the Catskills. It is early spring and we wanted to check out Rusk Mountain again. This time, we w...
