Banff - Day 3

After spending the night in Jasper then we took the Icefields Parkway south - back to Banff.

Then spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing in Banff and taking the Lake Minnwaka and Bow Valley scenic drives.

Banff - Day 2

Woke up to some beautifully moody weather -

We then ventured over to British Colombia (!!!) to go check out Emerald Lake

We then took Icefields Parkway, one of the most beautiful scenic drives, all the way up to Jasper Park. Here are a couple of the stops along the way -

Then we did a little exploration around Jasper National Park. Another cute resort town like Banff.

Banff - Day 1

And here we start another journey - but this time to Canada! (eh?)

After getting a little settled in Canadian culture and exploring the town of Banff a little we headed towards Lake Minnewaka. Right by the lake there was a stunning meadow of wildflowers.

After that - there was a stop at the infamous Lake Louise.

The last stop of the day was probably one of my most favorite - Lake Moraine.

52 Week Project - Week Six - Candy

Here is the select from this week! (After a long week of hiatus)

6/52 - Candy

Here are some of the other selects - went a little off topic because I was having a little fun with the oil that I was using.

Death Valley - Day 5

And finally the last day - which was rather bittersweet. But here is a little of the travel back where I stopped for a little bit at the Mojave Desert. At the Mojave Desert it felt strange due to the storm that was going through.

Death Valley - Day 4

The day started out pretty cloudy - but it started to clear once the sun came out.

The morning at Devil's Golf Course

The morning at Devil's Golf Course

The morning was mostly spent in Badwater exploring the southern part of Death Valley.

The very last part of the day was probably the closest that I thought that I would get stranded. Went a little off road to see a ghost town - to the point where I thought I broke my car rental. Fast forward to one hour later I was totally ok - but that might've been one of the most stressful times I've been in. I survived! Got to experience another beauty of a sunset.

Death Valley - Day 3

Woke up to a stunning sunrise on the side of a mountain -

Took a small trek up on the side of a cliff to get this view of Zabriskie's Point.

Ubehebe Crater - which you can imagine is rather large and also unexpectedly extremely windy. I almost lost my lens cap here.

Went a little outside of Death Valley to go to the well kept ghost town - Rhyolite. Where it was a boom town and there are still standing structures.

And of course - got to see so many stars. One of the darkest places on this earth.

Death Valley - Day 2

Started off at the Mesquite Sand Dunes for the early morning sunrise -

After sunrise at the dunes, I drove around the west side of Death Valley.

There was quite a small sand storm 

Then went on my way to Badwater

Death Valley - Day 1

And the journey starts!

The first stop was going to Red Rock Canyon for a beautiful scenic drive

After visiting - the next stop was Death Valley!

Miriam's Going to Mars - Day 3
