Lake Minnewanka – Banff National Park

If you want to get lost in the beauty of nature, take a trip to Lake Minnewanka in Banff National Park which is about 15 minutes Northwest of Canmore (where I’m currently staying). The lake is 21 miles wide and around 460 feet deep.  It was actually raised 30 feet in 1941 as a dam was built for hydro electric power …

The course itself is wide open, but challenging around the greens. As seen in the picture above, bunkers surround every green and are in many fairways. One needs to be particularly careful with their …

The Start of a New Journey

Well, I’m back at on the road again. This time with a job (more on that in another post). I’m going to be traveling the Pacific Northwest and make my way down to Southern California over the course of two or three months while working remotely. Here’s the start of a new journey: I eventually arrived in Missoula after 16.5 …
