This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
I headed north to Vancouver and headed over the Rockies to Banff for some ice climbing. The drive over the Rockies in winter conditions was quite something, definitely challenging conditions. The roads were icy the whole way. There are also so often avalanches that special covers are built over parts of the road to protect vehicles, and there are signs asking drivers not to stop in certain places due to the avalanche risk. It's a long drive from Vancouver to Banff so I was pleased to get in.
Banff is a stunning place, surrounded by the most gorgeous mountains. It was icy cold but completely clear weather. While I was there I went ice climbing, the cold conditions meant lots of well frozen ice. While I was driving back I saw a wolf, a rare sight and one I felt very lucky to have seen!
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it!
