So as many of you know I recently went on a two week trip to mid-western Canada for my cousin's graduation. Well the pictures from that have finally been downloaded to my computer, and uploaded to photobucket. Here is my story.
The two cousins I was staying with love horse riding, so before i left I had to go see them ride. It was really cool getting to see them do what they love. Horses apparently like me.
The next part of my trip was going out to see the mountains. My older cousin and I stayed the night at her friend's in Calgary. First thing Canada day morning we left for Lake Louise in Banff national park. The whole trip left me completely awe-struck. No pictures of the mountains can capture how overwhelming and beautiful they are.
On the wat back from there we stopped in the town of Banff. It was really cool. Completely a tourist town and it was crazy for Canada day. Sidewalk painting, meal deals, sales, celebration everywhere. I felt so Canadian! We also went to the small town of Canmore. And for my fellow Canadians, no, I did not meet Mike. I did get to see the giant head though! (Didn't know they had one? Niether did I)
To really top off this Canada Day road trip acrosse half of Albereta, we went to Vulcan, the Star Trek capital of Canada. It was so awesome! I got to see so much cool stuff in just a few minutes. To end our day we stayed with her friend in a small town called Clairsholm and saw fireworks!
We also went to see the crooked bush. It's really unbelievable. They're all Aspens which for completely unexplained reasons grow crooked and deformed. Apparently no one has been able to figure out why, but cows will not go near the patch of trees, and it's very isolated. There are no other known occurances like it in the world and even trees just a few feet outside of it grow normaly. It's sooo weird.
In Saskatoon I spent most of the time with my family. I saw the archeology exibit at the U of S, and got to see all the ambulances and air ambulances since my uncle is a paramedic.
That is about all for my trip though. I can't eblieve how long it's taken me to type this up, so I hope everyone lieks reading!
