Hiking in Kananaskis Country | Canada

Even though we’d visited the Rockies twice before we were still excited to return and hike some different trails. For our first few days we based ourselves in Canmore and did a few local hikes. The trails were within our beloved Kananaskis Country that I talked about in my previous post, but because they were…

Turquoise lakes, Icebergs and Lynx in Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park receives way more visitors than it can cope with. It’s tucked away at the most northern section of Montana, bordering Canada and should really be a pain in the butt to visit, yet the dramatic peaks have people driving cross country to get there. We arrived in the late afternoon and popped…

The ultimate hot spring roadtrip | Idaho

Idaho is home to more natural hot springs than any other state so we set out on one hell of a relaxing roadtrip to visit as many as possible. After soaking in our favourite ones around Stanley for the previous week, we reluctantly left the high mountains and followed river carved valleys west. The first…

Returning to the jaw dropping Sawtooths | Idaho

As much as we always want to explore new places, we also love returning to our favourite spots and Idaho is one of them. It was a hell of a long, lonely drive heading west from Wyoming, through Montana and then finally into the Famous Potato State. We passed ranches with cowboys corralling their cattle…

Bears up trees, prowling wolves and charging bison in Yellowstone

We desperately wanted to see wolves in Yellowstone so we did a nice drive along the Lamar Valley which is said to be a great area for wildlife. It started with the usual culprits, a few bison roaming the land and pronghorn antelopes looking like they’d been transported from Africa. About halfway along the road…

Yellowstone National Park | Wyoming

Yellowstone is one of our favourite National Parks and it’s easy to see why with the abundance of wildlife and colourful volcanic activity. The route from Grand Teton to Yellowstone’s southern entrance led us through a large area of blackened tree stumps. The wildfire that caused the huge burn had only just been put out…

Grand Teton National Park | Wyoming

Mountain ranges surrounded us on all sides as we made our way north to Grand Teton National Park. It’s the perfect park for us as it has incredible hikes, plenty of wildlife and free camping in the adjacent national forest so we never feel the need to rush. We arrived in the late afternoon so…

The Real Wyoming

There was a long, lonely stretch of road as we left Moab, Utah and headed north. We saw more pronghorn antelopes than humans and towns looked like they’d been left behind in the 70’s. Dinosaurs once roamed the area so we stopped to see a quarry that had been excavated and revealed over 1500 fossilised…
