Canada 150: National Park Style

In honour of Canada's 150th birthday this year, the Canadian Government has given free park entry to all residents and visitors into all of our national parks.  And if you buy your park passes annually like we do, we were given an extra year of entry for free so if you purchased a pass in 2016, it doesn't expire until 2018 so we all get to celebrate! 


If you have not requested and/or received your park pass yet, don't panic!  You technically don't even need one, the parks just want to keep track of numbers which is why they are issuing them but that being said, you can get them at any park gate and/or visitor center inside the park!


Here is a breakdown by National Park of all the hikes we have done.  These do not include Greg's backpacking trips or basically any hiking trip he has done without me.  Most of these hikes have been done MULTIPLE times hahahhaha.  It is ridiculous how many times we have done Johnston Canyon and Tunnel Mountain.

My goal is to do one post every Tuesday about a hike and/or national park depending on what I have to say about it haha.  There will be exceptions to this rule.  For example, we were at  Johnston Canyon on Sunday so that will be on the blog tomorrow.  Next Tuesday will be Johnston Canyon in the  non winter months.  I look forward to writing and sharing our favourite hikes with you!  Each of the posts in this series will be labelled Canada 150 so if you click on that, all the posts will come up for you!
