Banff and Jasper are old friends. I've spent time in this part of my country, and it is a gloriously beautiful place!

It's been a good 40 years since I visited Banff National park but I loved it. You are right there are truly stunning mountains there. I enjoyed your photos very much.

Great shots and Banff is a place that I have long wanted to go. So beautiful. Guess they need to move up higher on my bucket list
The only place that I have been to in Canada is Whistler, and that was pretty amazing, so I can see why you loved it! xx

I've only been to Canada once--we were in Detroit and decided to go across the border briefly. I don't even know what part of Canada we were in...but we didn't stay long. Just drove around a little and went right back to Detroit. I do want to go to Niagara Falls someday.

No, I've been to eastern Canada but not the Rockies. Spent a little time in the Rockies in the US.

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
