Athabasca Glacier Icewalks

Athabasca Glacier Icewalks, is part of Jasper National Park, Canada. What I love about hiking - is to look back at that path and think yeah, it was a real struggle but I made it through ok. I am still alive. Doing fine. Kind of like looking at your own life. 

Look at that hike, you will huff and puff ...but when you get to the top it is well worth the view. Hope you can get the perspective and see how steep it truly was and is. My issue with hiking while cold is your getting hot, even starting to sweat but it is so cold that your nose is running many emotions going on. ha. ha!! That all being said it is well worth the stress, the freezing temps and huffing and puffing. Please go, no regrets!!! If you want to see more beyond those ropes you have to pay. Beth ( :

Good Morning, Beth! It is a neat place to hike.. I would be huffing and puffing up the hill too. Great photos, thanks for sharing your trip!

Have a happy day and new week ahead!

Everyone looks so cold! But what a glorious place to be cold!

In the limited number of times I"ve visited the glacier, it is amazing how much it has receded. At an early point we could drive up the debris side of the glacier in our own car. that's changed now.

i like that one shot of the ribbon of folks following the trail - looks quite cold and desolate. :)

I normally enjoy cold-weather hiking more than I enjoy hiking in hot weather. But I think I would enjoy this hike in any weather.
What a lovely post! Excellent.

Beth, that looks way too cold and desolate for me to participate, little chicken that I am.

I've been on that glacier a number of times. The receding state of it is alarming.

We walked on this glacier too. It was so interesting to see how much it had melted over the decades. Great pictures Beth.

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…
