    Travel: Siffleur Falls Hike

    Siffleur Falls hike – this easy, yet wonderful hike is about 3.5 hours from our home. The trail is full of mountain views, fresh air and clear glacier running water.

Elk Island Winter Hike One thing that bothers me about Elk Island, and I’d say most hiking trails is that their estimate for the hike is usually far…

Okay, let’s check out some photos from our hike. Hiking in Jasper We hiked the five lakes trail. The trail wasn’t quiet (we most certainly saw people), yet it wasn’t packed either. Look…
