People keep telling me the Icefields Parkway is one of the best drives in the world. I haven’t driven every road in the world but I wouldn’t disagree.Today marks 2 weeks up here at the Ice, and I swear I fall more in love with the place every day..

The photos are from the Northern half of the Parkway, from the Icefield to Japser. Every single turn of this road grants access to yet another sensational view, yet another soaring summit.

This 200km-ish round trip is my closest option for beer, for a grocery store, or even phone reception.

What a shame I have to take this road to reach civilisation…

Tis just another Tuesday afternoon. Enjoyed my final sleep-in for this week, as the 7am shifts start from tomorrow morning. There is nothing out of the ordinary about this Tuesday, I wandered down to the common room for some soup, fruit and coffee which I enjoyed whilst meeting some more of the staff who arrived yesterday, and then wandered back upto my room. The enthusiasm for practicing yoga has returned in my life, so I tidied up my room, opened the window wide, popped on a Brian Jonestown Massacre album and had a good old stretch and mindful / mindless relaxing time.

So I’m in my room; feeling the cool, crisp mountain breeze on my skin, feeling this same air come in and out of my lungs.. when suddenly this feeling rushes over me. Something I’m not completely familiar with.. I am completely and utterly content in my current situation. I have no worries, no fears, no uncertainty. That curious gut feeling, which makes me feel as if something is wrong, has disappeared.

Absolutely, completely, content.

Here’s hoping I can maintain this feeling.
