I wrote a blog post a while back about the “Junior Ranger Badges” National Parks & Monuments in the USA have on offer, for children of all ages (yep, so that includes us adults too).

It’s the perfect location for those, like myself, who are completely infatuated with the mountains and loves exploring the outdoors.

This is a long stretch of…… Continue reading The Road to Jasper: Icefield’s Parkway
