Our country, Canada extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic. It’s the world’s 2nd largest country by total area. As put by our former prime minister, “While other countries have too much history, Canada has too much Geography”. Indeed, it’s incredibly BIG and we first appreciate this vast expanse when our family drove to move west into the prairies from the Greater Toronto. A eureka when we were on the road! The range of adventures that awaits us is right before us to explore and discover!
We didn’t have time to waste. The Canadian Rocky Mountains is right in our backyard. We have five national parks close to us in Alberta: Banff National Park, Jasper National Park, Waterton National Park, Elk Island National Park and Wood Buffalo National Park and our closest neighbor, British Columbia has seven. Lucky, all these wild, unspoiled and stunning getaways are only less half a day’s drive.
We have long, extreme winter and it makes summer a must-look forward season. We needed a no –frill, quick set-up, easily- deployed tough gear. We chose Tepui and we love it. It’s all a simple unfold, lower the ladder and ta-da…a home anywhere, anytime! We know, it will be an endless and countless adventure from now on. More mapped and unmapped trails as we are happy with our Tepui!
