I have been lucky to see a lot of Canada. Growing up in Manitoba and southern Ontario, my family travelled every summer to visit family in Quebec and PEI. As a student, I took summer jobs in the Rockies (where I now live) and I spent one summer, hitching across Canada - coast to coast and back.
Then came marriage, kids and a mortgage. When the kids were growing up, almost all of our vacation time and $$ went to visiting our extended families. Any "leftovers" generally went to short road trips in neighbouring (and beautiful) British Columbia. Now with the kids grown, travel has been a bigger priority for us as a couple.
I love the Rockies, my adopted home for over thirty years, and I love helping people learn about them. As an avid hiker, I am especially happy to answer questions about the trails in the area!
