Last September we drove from Jasper, Alberta to Banff, Alberta following a family wedding we attended. The Icefields Parkway is a stunning 232km of some of Canada's most beautiful landscapes and vistas, as you can already see. When we got to Banff, we spent one night in a campground before we headed back up to Edmonton. We highly recommend taking this trip at least once in your lifetime!
Drumheller is located in the Alberta Badlands and is unlike any other area in our province. It is home to an incredible abundance of dinosaur history, giving it the title of Dinosaur Capital of the World. Visiting this small town feels like visiting a different planet.
Once we started our trip back home to Edmonton, our first stop was a night in Napa Valley. We visited the Castello di Amorosa Winery with Jenya's brother and family. It was such a cool place to visit, and even though it's not a real historical castle, it was a fun adventure exploring all of the areas of the winery.
Three days of our road trip were spent in San Francisco / Berkeley to visit Jenya's brother and his family. Driving our huge lifted Jeep through downtown San Francisco was definitely an adventure. Let's just say we aren't the biggest fans of huge cities. However, we did some some really beautiful sights while we were there, amidst the crazy coastal winds and copious amounts of people.
Trinidad is a really neat cove that we enjoyed along our travel through California. It used to be a small fishing town back in the day but now it's mostly a tourist attraction consisting of parks, beaches, vacation homes, and quaint gift shops and cafes.
