Two of the creepiest places to spend Hallowe’en in Canada are Fort George in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, and the Atlas Coal Mine near Drumheller in the Canadian Badlands of Alberta.
This is a bit of a different type of road story today but one I think is worth telling…
Glenn and I are just back from another glorious Canadian road trip. This time we traveled to Québec and the foothills of the Laurentian Mountains (Les Laurentides).
I LOVE finding original old stores on our roadtrips across Canada and finding Ritchie’s in Brockville, Ontario, was like finding a pot of gold.
When the town’s old grocery store (circa 1907) reopened in 2006 as the Snack Shack, I’m betting it was a welcome sight for local residents.
5th generation farmer/ poet Rod Potter has fashioned a large old pickup into a tour bus of sorts at his Century Game Park.
I’m sitting with Glenn on the outdoor patio at the Anchorage, a casual dining spot and affordable motor hotel in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.
Due to the lack of light pollution and the thin cloud cover in this area of southeastern Alberta, night sky viewing here is a whole different world compared to the big city.
Unique honeymoon ideas from the Canadian Badlands…
One of the highlights of our visit to the Canadian Badlands in southeastern Alberta was touring the Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site.
