Arches National Park -Part 2

Quote

Fiery Furnace

If you love challenging hikes, you need to check out this natural labyrinth at the Fiery Furnace. The twisted sandstone walls, rock scrambling, narrow squeezes would be an exciting experience.

To enter the Fiery Furnace hike, you need to sign up for a guided Ranger your which is available May – September, or you can do the self-guided tour, but you must get a hiking permit from the park office.

Do you ever wonder how?
Myron thinking we need to do this hike next time
The layers of colour in the rocks!
Just sitting for a few minutes and enjoying the view before moving on.

Skyline Arche

This is a short and easy hike that starts in the middle of the parking lot.

So close, yet so far away!!
”its time to remember what it’s like to be alive” unknown
Standing at the bottom of Skyline Arch
Just two goofs trying to pose for a selfie!!
Doesn’t look that big, does it?

Now, zoom in and you can see hikers standing in the arch!
Picture on our way back from the arch to the parking lot.
I never want to stop making memories with you!

We had a great time touring the Arches and Canyonland National Parks, and we are both looking forward to our next trip back for some more hiking adventures and checking out Dead Horse State Park.

I wonder where we should head to next?!

Tails it is!

September 18, 2019 – Border Binder

Quote

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons here in Saskatchewan.

Sitting with my morning coffee and watching the trees begin a new transformation in preparation for the upcoming winter. I find it so calming and therapeutic. The leaves magically begin changing colours, and then gracefully fall to the ground.




The morning air is so crisp and fresh, which usually sparks our conversations on our morning walks to include homemade soups, hearty stews and of course, plans for our winter snowbird trip south.

Several of our Canucks On Wheels followers have sent us messages and asked if we would share what makes up our border binder.

Since it is now less than 30 days till we head south, and we are in snowbird prep mode, now would be a good time to share.

A little background for those of you wondering how our border binder started.

Travelling with anxiety can be difficult at the best of time. Now, crossing the border sends me (Becky) into a tailspin of what-ifs!

What if I didn’t have a document that can be requested! What if I lost our credit card or even worse our passports!

This says it all!

Before our first snowbird trip back in 2014, I had all our documents stuffed in a big brown envelope. It held everything that I thought we needed, but I started to get anxious that I didn’t have everything or that I could lose something important. Hence, why we put together this border binder, it contains copies of all our pertinent documents that could be requested by border security officers at the border.

I decided a binder with a zipper would be the most logical, and bright pink would be easy to spot if misplaced.

Plastic sheet protectors work great for keeping everything organized.

Here is the list of the documents we have in our collection.
