Thanks to fellow travel blogger Candice, of Candice Does the World for nominating me for the Capture the Colour contest 2013! The premise? Post five travel pics on your blog that feature the colours blue, red, green, yellow and white. Then, nominate fellow bloggers.
The contest is put on by Travel Supermarket and they are offering up some great prizes!
So without further adieu – here are my entries:
Blue - Every year blue birds migrate to valley areas near Craven, Saskatchewan to take up residence in the birdhouses that sit attached or atop the fence posts. This little fella was the only one I spotted when I made my journey there but I was satisfied as he sat and posed for me for quite a while. Red - This pic of my son was taken during an adventure packed visit to Waskesiu, Saskatchewan. We had just finished a morning of dog sledding through the boreal forest and spent the afternoon tubing on the slopes at Elk Ridge resort.
The trek up to Prince Albert Park to explore Waskesiu was a memorable one. As you will recall I blogged a while back about wolf trekking and dog sledding.This month’s article I wrote for Pink goes into more detail on how I went about finding winter in Waskesiu. And I sure did find it. It was -20 to -30 all weekend long! Read the full article here.
The intention behind the travel spread I write for Pink (and for my blog in general) is to inspire exploration, whether that be in your own backyard or beyond. You won’t regret it.
Personally speaking, travel truly nurtures my soul and provides me with constant inspiration. I have also learned that travel with children proves not only to be fun, but such an amazing opportunity for little ones to learn.
Beyond sharing and writing about these experiences capturing them is a great way to look back and remember how much fun was had. If you are interested, I have just posted more photos from the beautiful Waskesiu region on my Facebook page. Here is a sneak peek at one of the very lovable sled dogs from SunDogs.
