That's right, this summer is the Summer of ADVENTURE!!! I recently spent three days pouring over the pictures and blog posts from our foray in Victoria last summer. We spent less than two months there, yet in that time we traveled more, and saw more than we ever do in Calgary. We thought nothing of picking Jared up from class and driving for two hours just to splash in tide pools for an afternoon. While we lived in Michigan we did the same thing. We went to sightseeing to Chicago, Nauvoo, Palmyra, Sandusky, and so many more places. We visited Hamilton and Waterloo monthly. We went camping and hiking and apple picking and boating. We had parties and attended parties. Yet, here in Calgary, it is so easy to do a whole lot of nothing. No adventures. No exploring. No fun!
So, this summer is thus named: The Summer of Adventure!
We are going to explore this grand province of ours (and maybe a few things in BC and Idaho as well) as if we are tourists only here for the summer. We are going to go out and see what there is to see!
What's on my Adventure list you ask?
So far this is what we've got:
Nature, Hikes and Walks -
Fish Creek Park
Bear's Hump (Waterton)
Rat's Nest Cave (Canmore)
Inglewood Bird Sancuary
Rosedale Suspension Bridge (Drumheller)
Museums and Historical Sites-
Royal Tyrrel Museum
Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump
Alberta Legislature Building
Atlas Coal Mine (Drumheller)
Rocky Mountain House National Historical Site

Bow Habitat Station and Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery
The Calgary Stampede
West Edmonton Mall

The Calgary Tower
Float the Bow

The Peace Bridge
Okay, I certainly won't get around to going to every one of those places, and maybe there are some others know about, but no matter what, we are going to have fun! That's the name of the game. So, my local friends, what else should be on my list? What other adventures should I be having?
