Stand Up Paddleboarding in Edmonton

Stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is the fastest growing sport around the world -- and in Edmonton -- right now for good reason. It’s easy, there’s a low learning curve, and most people can jump on a board their first time out with no previous experience or lessons. It’s also a

Elk Island National Park

Over the course of the year, I headed to Elk Island National Park quite a number of times. I posted about my earlier trips here so I figured that I will share the latest photos as well! Elk Island is one of my favourite spots to enjoy nature at any time of the year – it is super close to Edmonton, and each visit is always a different experience. This particular morning, we headed out just to see the sunrise (I had a vacation day on this particular day, but I wanted to see if there was time…

A FEW DAYS AT ASTOTIN LAKE – TRACEY SAWATZKY

Over the last few days, Josh and I have headed out to Astotin Lake at Elk Island National Park a number of times to soak up the gorgeous spring days that have felt more like summer. It was way too hot to hike each time we had gone, so we just hung out by the lake and explored the lake shore. Hoping next time we go, we can finally finish the Lakeview Trail! (We’ve attempted it twice already, first being the end of winter and was too wet and melty, and the second being ridiculously hot…) Upon…

HIKE BEAVER POND TRAIL – TRACEY SAWATZKY

The day we went on this hike the weather was constantly changing. As we were picking up breakfast and heading to get some coffee we weren’t even sure if we wanted to go anymore… (yes, we get food at one spot and coffee at the other if both are open) The wind picked up and it started snowing. It wasn’t pleasant, but we decided to give it a go. I mean, the weather would probably change in a few minutes, and if not then we had a nice countryside drive with our breakfast. Before heading to our…

FOUR SEASONS AT CLIFFORD E. LEE NATURE SANCTUARY – TRACEY SAWATZKY

It was the first week of the new year, the temperature was a rather chilly -20 degrees Celsius plus whatever it was with the wind chill, but that didn’t stop us from going out for a hike at Clifford E. Lee Nature Sanctuary. We had never been there yet, and it sounded like an interesting place to explore regardless of season. (There are just under 5km of trails and boardwalks through marshland, aspen parkland, open meadow and pine forest to explore.) However, I think the only way that I could…
