Lake Louise driving 1A





If you have not noticed I am madly in love with Canada. Let's discuss Beth's loves in life ---here goes ... Virginia is my heart, West Virginia is my lungs it keeps me breathing 'cause it is oh so close to my real home, Montana & Wyoming I have a madly silly love for ever since I 1st traveled there with my parents in the early 90's & finally ... Canada comes into play & knocks every other state in the United States right out of the ball park. Sorry other states you need to start working your magic cause Canada is winning big time!! BIG TIME!!!

I really feel I had no clue how beautiful Canada is. When chatting with folks you will find that folks either really love or hate Canada. My question is how can you hate Canada? we had a rainy trip but refused to let it get us down. the fog is trying to break away. pics taken August 2014. Beth. ( :

Hi Beth, I have only heard great things about Lake Louise and Banff. I would love to visit there myself someday.. Sorry about the rain, but your photos are still pretty. Have a happy day!
Thank you for your vote for Canada! We think it is beautiful.

We are going to make our first trek into Canada this summer, so looking forward to it.
Gorgeous photos. I really love Canada. My father worked there, and we use to spend summers up there.

I agree that Canada has some world class scenery. The rainy days can't hurt the Canadian pictures.

I agree with you about Canada's beauty although most of what I've seen is in pictures..It's very buggy though..Maybe that's because I was around the water ways..
Mari said…
Pretty magical sky.

I haven't seen a great deal of Canada, but I really like what I've seen. I would love to get to Lake Louise.

Great mood in these shots, Beth. I've been in those mountains in clear conditions, and on days like this with rain and fog. Beautiful all around!

I think Canada's western provinces are indeed gorgeous, still pretty much unspoiled!

Loretta Lynn's Ranch, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee

"Loretta Lynn's Ranch", 8000 Highway 13 South, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee 37078. I have always loved Loretta Lynn's country style music. She is just a legend ...so I knew when the hubby suggested we stay in her campground, I was super excited. I assumed that when you would be staying at her campground, it would sort of be included in the stay price to see all her treasures and tours. Nope, to see anything of the museum or anything else, you would have to pay even more to see her home, museum or bus, etc. WHAT??!! So we walked around and saw what we could see for free, then headed to the campground. I am a very experienced camper ... I have stayed at really pricey campgrounds and very cheap campgrounds ... so we have been there done that, kind situation. So the price we paid I would have thought the campground would have been in better condition. & it was such a letdown that it was not that great. 
VERY SAD FACE. : (
These shots are great & they were FREE to s…

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.

Cove Point Lighthouse
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…
