Hudson’s Bay recently announced that Zellers is coming back in the form of pop-up stores, and an online store.
You can see my photos of Zellers when it largely closed back in 2012. I also did a photo essay when Target left Canada.
On January 18, 2023, I was interviewed by CBC Radio’s The Homestretch in Calgary to talk about my photos of the Zellers closure, the sign I took, and what I think of the new stores opening.
Although I have lived in Calgary for almost 14 years, I have never visited Vancouver. I decided to take the short flight to visit earlier this month.
In this post, which is my first in quite a while, I’d like to share my favourite photos from the short trip. Enjoy!
Alberta’s Dinosaur Provincial Park is a UNESCO world heritage site located east of Calgary. It is known for its badlands topography and dinosaur fossils.
Like the Rocky Mountains and so many other attractions in Alberta, Dinosaur Provincial Park is a great place for natural landscape photography. It would be cool to view this park during various weather conditions, although the length of the drive prevents it from being a spur of the moment decision. Weather conditions, especially the best ones for photography, can change so rapidly.
Drumheller, which is actually a couple hours away, looks similar in places and is also known for dinosaurs.
I’d like to share my favourite photos from the visit. Enjoy!
Ribbon Creek Trail is an 8km trail west of Calgary in Kananaskis. I hiked it a while ago now, but forgot about the photos.
Here are a few of my favourite photos from the hike!
Lake Louise is always beautiful, but I am especially enjoying how the colours of fall are still now peering through snow. In fact, the snow made the trails up to the Lake Agnes Tea House too slippery, so I walked around the back instead along a trail I’ve never explored before.
St. Andrews, New Brunswick was recently recognized by USA Today as the top Canadian destination to visit. I thought it would be a great time to blog about my recent visit to the historic Van Horne Estate on Minister’s Island which is near St. Andrews.
You can only access Minister’s Island by driving across the ocean floor during low tide. As a result, the tourist site’s hours of operations vary daily. You can end up trapped on the island if you fail to return to the mainland before the tide comes in! Continue reading
Earlier this year, I had the chance to visit Toronto again. I explored the Yonge Street and Dundas Square area at nighttime, which I think is one of the busier areas of Toronto. Continue reading
Without a large body of water nearby, Kelowna is one of the areas where Calgarians go on vacation to experience a full waterfront, and the activities that go with it, including lounging on the beach. My summer visit this year was my very first. If you haven’t seen my post about Caldwell Heritage Farm in Kelowna, be sure to read it!
