Travel Diary
After making it through Banff National Park which was incredible we made it to Rocky Mountain House National Park. We stopped there to check it out before it closed and ask if they knew of any good camping in the area. We saw some Bison in the field. It's pretty hard to see them because they were a bit too far away. It turned out that there was camping at the park and it was reasonably priced as well. Only $15.70! We took a walk around the park. The park is the sight of a fort used back in the day of the early settlers and fur traders. There were some different trails to take and see what life was like for the Metis settlers and fur traders.

We started off our new series 'Spotlight' with Birmingham!

No we aren't talking about Birmingham Alabama. We are talking about good old Birmingham, England. We lived there for two years 2015-2017 and it was two of the most amazing years of our lives. We met a lot of great people, ate some amazing food, explored the city until we could not explore any further. Now we want to share all of the things we love about Birmingham with you. Join us the fourth Sunday of every month for our latest spotlight series.

We were looking for good campgrounds in the area to camp at and there were a few to choose from. We continued driving towards the National Park Campground. We made it to Kicking Horse Campground which had showers and washrooms. It was under $30 to camp there so cheaper than some of the other campgrounds we were finding. It was self registration so we had to fill out a form with our credit card number to pay for the site and put it in a payment box since we didn't have any cash. One of the campers was driving out of the campground and told us that there was a Grizzly Bear roaming around the campground and to be careful.  We made sure to keep our eyes out and be bear safe with all our food. It was a really nice campground but it was pretty busy.…
