Living and growing up in Seattle has made going to British Columbia a practical trip. Because it's (loosely speaking of course) an easy trip, I've fallen in love with Canada. But, there's still so much to see. One of my favorite films is Jumbo Wild. It tells the story of a pristine Valley untouched by urbanization and human development. However, there is a chance that the Jumbo Valley, near Invermere B.C, will be developed into a Whistler like ski resort. Being a lover of the outdoors and advocate for keeping things wild, I want to see the Jumbo Valley in it's natural state before it's tainted. To be immersed in the wild in a beautiful place like Jumbo is a dream of mine. With this trip, the ultimate goal is to get to the Jumbo Valley while still visiting places in Canada that I have yet to see. Plus, with being a photographer, this trip has the potential for some of my best work yet. This trip my be the trip of a lifetime.
This is where the journey will end. Glacier National Park is somewhere I've always wanted to go and explore. From pictures and talking with friends who've been, it's number one on my National Park bucket list.
Invermere, British Columbia, Canada
This is the closest town to the Jumbo Valley, a place I'm dying to go see. Being surrounded but water and mountains is one of my favorite things about this city, well from what I've seen of course.
Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada
This is the ultimate mountain/ski town that I would absolutely love to visit. Not to mention, the place where my favorite skier/inspiration resides, Leah Evans.
Banff, Alberta, Canada
Banff National Park is by far one of the most beautiful places I've seen. Though only witnessed through pictures and video, this place I know will be one of the most awe-inspiring places. Being a photographer, this the place I want to photograph the most and is easily a dream of mine.
Squamish, British Columbia, Canada
I've constantly heard about the rock climbing here and it's a place I've always wanted to go and climb. But, aside from the climbing, the hiking and adventuring potential here is off the charts.
This is the one place I have been to. I love Vancouver. There's still so much more for me to see here that it's always an amazing place to go.
This is where the journey will begin since I live here. This is inarguably one of the best cities in the U.S.
