HeLa Ventures shared this picture from their North Saskatchewan River canoe trip from Saunders to Rocky Mountain House with the Global Bushcraft Symposium. The Global Bushcraft Symposium is a nonprofit society that promotes traditional survival skills development and instruction within the outdoor recreation industry. HeLa Ventures had the opportunity to show off a bit of David Thompson Country to this very experienced group of outdoor enthusiasts.
#LakeLouise is one of the most visited locations in the Canadian Rockies, and for good reason. Great day hikes, wildlife, a royal hotel, and jaw-dropping vistas like this make it easy to understand why it's such a popular stop.
The waters along the rocky coastline are usually a milky green color from all the rock flour, but if you get there early on a windless morning before the sun hits it, you're rewarded with perfectly still water and this intense turquoise color. Enjoy! 😎🏞️
You can climb the hoodoos to get great views...or escape from snakes. Because there are three different kinds to watch for while at Writing on Stone Provincial Park. Uh-huh, that’s right. Snakes 😬 Harmless garter snakes, constrictor bull snakes or venomous rattle snakes frequent this landscape 🐍 Currently its rattle snake migrating season there...not sure what that means but they’re on the move and out and about 😱 That’s right folks, make sure to fully zip up that tent!
Spent the last few days camping at and exploring one of my favourite Alberta parks. I am always amazed with the tremendous diversity we have in this amazing province. From glaciers, Rocky Mountains, rolling foothills, prairies to desert like hoodoo formations. Be warned, hoodoo overload coming your way soon 😜

Climb more mountains, take more pictures... right @thechrishau?
This man has my heart ♥️ ⠀
We’ve been married a little over six years now, and I can’t imagine life without him. We go for (at least) weekly walks by the lake or canal, and I can’t even tell you how much I cherish those times. Every single time is different in the weather, scenery, and conversation too. I love it!! 🥰
Some moments you need to just stop. Stop what you’re doing. Stop thinking. Stop documenting (I know, ironic right), stop stressing, just stop. Allow yourself to simply exist, to be apart of everything that is taking place around you, regardless of whether you are there or not. Fully immerse yourself into the peace that the natural rhythm of the wild. In that moment, I promise you that you’ll find peace.
