With Spring in full effect, June is a good time of the year to arrange a road trip in Alberta. There are a lot of amazing locations to see and the time of year has optimal driving conditions, it's not extremely hot or extremely cold. The hard part is narrowing down your list of localities to see during your road trip and what you can see is restricted to the amount of time you plan on devoting out on the wide open road. Nevertheless, no matter what alternative you ultimately choose, there is no question that you will have a great time on your journey. There are numerous locations to see in Alberta. From wildlife, picturesque landscapes together with grand city attractions, you can find something for everyone. If you are aiming to go on a ride that is genuinely exclusive, cruising along the Canadian Rockies is a feeling you cannot forget. With more than 1,000 kilometers in duration extending across Southern Alberta and traversing into British Columbia, you will not find a shortage of attractions to see as you travel.
You will get sufficient opportunity to stop and consume the attractions and feel the great outdoors first hand. The only question that remains is, can you be up for some mountain climbing? You can't pay a visit to Alberta without going to Banff. It happens to be the best place for a road trip and you have no shortage of activities once you get there. You could drive through or participate in countless adventures. From camping out, trekking, fishing, sailing, canoeing and many more things to do, you will have something to do for everyone. You can also pay a visit to the park in the winter to participate and many winter activities as well. And, you should not forget about the panoramic views and terrific wildlife that live at the park, making this a great experience for everyone. If you really like being out on the road and would like to visit as much of the province as you can, then the Trans-Canada Highway 1 in Alberta is the path for you. Stretching across the complete southern part of the province, the route is going to take you through Medicine Hat, Calgary and Banff. These are just 3 of a large number of localities that one could take a road trip to this June. As soon as you decide on which direction you are headed, all you have to do is pack up the car, pick out your summer play list, and hit the road.
They were friendly people, and even though they made a living guiding tourists, they made us feel invited and kept a positive attitude of excitement. Donning life jackets, we boarded a hard bottomed rubber raft type of boat with an outboard motor and headed across the water to the Tatoosh Islands. Another guide was waiting and several tandem kayaks were lined up along the shoreline. We followed the guide around an island paddling in some waves and some protected water. Never worry about capsizing and coming eyeball to eyeball with a shark, there were plenty of jelly fish in the water to deal with. Small translucent ones and larger red colored ones. Some caught a few glimpses of sea lions. We came across a solo expedition kayaker who was header from Ketchikan to Skagway. Made me wish for that kind of an adventure. Someone said that taking an Alaska cruise will make you feel young….cause everyone on the ship is over 100. The passengers were definitely on the older side and the entertainment was naturally biased to their preferences. The passengers were also quite ethnically diverse with mostly Asian and Indian passengers. To me the excursions and the scenery were the best parts. I don’t really care for the constant “personal service” and attention. It makes me uncomfortable. I would love to visit Alaska again, but not by Cruise ship.
The falls re-established the pathway, carving the way through solid rock to the present location. This turmoil created the three falls that are the Niagara Falls of present time. For approximately 12,300 years, the Niagara River chiseled out what is known as the 7.2-mile gorge. It began between the villages of Lewiston, NY and ended up in Queenston, Ontario. It has been deduced that as many as 10 tributary streams flowed over the edge of the Niagara Gorge and dropped to the lower Niagara River. Unfortunately, most of the streams have died out, due to the so-called progressive actions of man. The mouth of the Niagara River lies in the Queenston-Lewiston area, where the water jumps over rocks, creating whitewater peaks throughout, along 7 miles to the lower river before heading into Niagara Falls. Approximately 12.500 years ago, the gorge began to form as the waterfalls eroded the rock below.
The water flowed over the rocks, continually digging away at the ground under and around it, to form what is known as the Niagara Gorge. The gorge houses many escarpments, showing the layers of the decades gone by, giving one the sense of the numbers of years involved in making the gorge what it is today. Many creatures of long ago lie beneath the layers of stonewalls that line the five discernable sections of the gorge. Visitors claim each section has a separate feel and look. The Upper Great Gorge is closest to the falls. At nearly 365 meters, or 1200 feet, it is the home of the world famous Maid of the Mist ship, that navigates the waters to give visitors a closer look at the explosive Niagara Falls. The Whirlpool Rapid Gorge area combines the river and gorge creations together, whisking water into a 90 degree turn and a drop in elevation of over 50 feet in a distance that is but a little over a mile. The mixture of the sudden curvature and drop in elevation create a section known as the Whirlpool Rapids. The Whirlpool Jet Boat does the only water navigation in this section of deadly water. Due to the power of the jet boat, it is the only water vehicle strong enough to power itself back out of the whirlpool. The Niagara Gorge is home to the Lower Great Gorge as well. Lower Great Gorge may be the name, but the nickname fits it better.
