I am a Calgary Alberta Canada based blogger that has travelled a lot over the years. This post is about my home and what I enjoy doing with my free time not travelling the world.
Calgary is a great city to live in with the western feel and the modern city skyline. I was born/ raised in Calgary my whole life but my favorite part about Calgary is just outside of the city an hour away. That is the Rocky Mountains with the natural wild life and the amazing roads to drive thru. When I get free time in the summer, I enjoy driving into the mountains to a small town called Invermere and have been going to the town since I was 10 years old with my family. To me Invermere is my prefect day drive away from Calgary being 3 hours down a windy road up and down the mountains in to an amazing Valley that has Windermere Lake. I try to take this trip at least 2 times a year or more.
Now for Calgary itself, there is a lot to do and visit in the city from the Calgary Zoo to The Olympic Hall of Fame. The Calgary Zoo every year tried to bring something new to the city, this pass couple of years were panda bears but they have the regular attractions there as well. A great place to visit is Heritage Park in Calgary with being a Historical Town that rein-act what Calgary use to be in the past. They has a museum called Gasoline Alley, which shows the history of the automobiles and the old lamp gas pumps. If you are in Calgary check out these places as they are just the start to what Calgary has to offer.
Last thing I am going to talk about is Banff and the park itself. Banff is amazing place that visitors flock to every year over summer and winter. The town has lots of great scenery and photographic spots to hit well you are there. Just outside the town, you have amazing hiking spots from Johnston Canyon Falls to hiking the cascade mountain. If I were to recommend doing a hike for all levels, I would have to say Johnston Canyon Falls. This hike has three levels to it the lower falls, the upper fall and then the ink pods, which is a great hike to do.
