With just two days allocated to Halifax and the surrounding area, we planned two night photography outings to make the most of our limited time: Halifax Harbour and the Halifax Explosion Memorial Bell Tower.
With just one full day to explore Halifax, it's possible to craft an itinerary that includes history, architecture, beautiful outdoor spaces and walking paths. Our top picks: Halifax Central Library, a walk along the harbour front, Halifax Citadel and the Halifax Public Gardens.
This month marked our first major vacation since our family trip to Iceland in 2015. And our Atlantic Canada itinerary included plenty of National Historic Sites, National Parks and other truly Canadian experiences. Returning home late on July 30th allows just enough time to select and share five photographs for this month's photo blogging challenge theme: patriotic.
Making time every day to get out and play is essential to my physical and mental well-being. And while I'm all for hitting epic trails as often as possible, a dose of nearby nature does the trick most days.
Highline Trail is a hard-packed trail with multiple route options. Well-used by fat-bike riders, mountain bikers and trail runners, it's also a an easy-to-reach conditioning trail well-suited for winter hiking. Mostly in the woods, there are a few peek-a-boo views into the Bow Valley, including the flood-hardened Cougar Creek.
