A visit down the Cowboy Trail must include a lunch break in Black Diamond and a visit to Marv's Classic Soda Shop. It is everything you loved about the 50s.
The best hike for kids in K Country is Troll Falls. It's an easy 3k walk with everything kids could ask for. It's also an easy starter mountain bike trail
I wear the same golf clothes as Tiger Woods, swing the same golf clubs, use the same golf balls. I do not play golf like Tiger Woods. The same is true for cameras. You can have the same tools as an expert, but if you don't have the talent it doesn't matter. Look at what the world's best Instagrammers did with the scenery in our backyard this week on Alberta 1x1.
I played MyVegas on Facebook for about 4 months before we headed out on our trip. I used it to get comps like free buffets, drinks, snacks, and more. Here's what I got, what was worth it, and how you can play MyVegas to get free comps on your next trip to Las Vegas.
Aspen Beach Provincial Park has one of the best beaches near Calgary. It is a huge campground next to the long beach with a sloping shoreline. The beach is perfect, but the campground is different. The weekend we went it was filled with partiers. That's fine, if you like to do that, but when I go camping with the kids I look for something more low key.
When is the best time to hike Larch Valley? In the fall, when the leaves are flaming yellow. Everyone knows this so go during the week, or early on the weekends. I left home at 630 and was rewarded with a fiery mountain meadow. Here's some pictures, and 8 other hikes to avoid the crowds during larch season in the Rockies.
It's so great when golf courses open up and welcome kids to play. I took Zacharie to play Silvertip Golf Course in Canmore where they have a new short course and kids play free. He maybe plays 4 or 5 holes in the 18, he's more interested in fixing divots, and playing with the ball washers. Silvertip was the perfect place for us to play our last round of the year.
