Canmore

I fell in love with Canmore, Alberta when I escorted a film crew to the community to help put together a urban interface Fire Smart video for Government of Alberta Sustainable Resource Development (SRD).  I interviewed variety of people while the crew filmed.  I took pictures that were used in print ads of initial attack crews loading a helicopter; initial attack briefing;  initial attack leaving by ground in a truck; SRD staff behind the scenes at a fire centre during a fire, at a structural fire department with SRD project managers at a variety of local Fire Smart projects. Canmore, Alberta is a very beautiful place and I really didn’t a change to explore when I was there for work so I promised myself that I would get back to explore.

I finally had that opportunity.  We stayed at the RV park right in town that had a spectacular view of the Three Sisters and all the surrounding mountains.  Although the sites were close together, there was recycling, clean showers, kid playground and friendly staff.

Canmore has so much to offer.  We biked the many trails through and around town.  We did a small bit of trail hiking. The kids loved playing in an empty lot on the piles of dirt.  I can not wait until the kids get a little older to be able to explore more trails in the area.  The downtown is a bustling place with many awesome stores and restaurants.  The boys (adult and kid) favourite store was the candy store.  We spent the most time in this store looking at all the different types of sugary treats.  I didn’t buy the candy bikini and bra, but found it very funny!

Next summer we hope to visit again and bike the trail between Canmore and Banff with the boys.

  1. WOW! These pictures are so great. You had absolutely stunning views of the mountains!
    I just started working for Circuit of the Americas, the new Formula 1 racetrack and premium event center in Austin…and I wanted to reach out to some RV owners to let them know we have VIP RV areas. So if you are interested, give me a shout and i can give you more deets 🙂
