Have you ever seen the Aurora Borealis? Every once and a while we get hit by a strong electromagnetic storm which can light up the sky in a dazzling display of colours. This pic was taken on Mother's Day 2016 during one of the most spectacular northern lights storms in recent memory. #northernlights #vermilionlakes #banff #bowvalleynetwork 🤳@banffnationalpark

The bluest water I've ever seen 😍 Dripping directly from that massive glacier you can see above us ⛰💧
🌊 Did you know the government owns 90 per cent of the land in B.C.? These lands are home to more than two-thirds of Canada’s bird species and land mammals. 🦅

The stunning beauty and easy access of this place has made Lake Moraine an Instagram favorite. That’s both good and bad. Getting more people out to experience and appreciate nature is a very good thing. However, the sheer crowds, and especially the disregard for nature evidenced by certain visitors both ignoring clearly posted park rules and demonstrating a blatant lack of respect of the environment (and of other people) takes a negative toll. When you visit these places, be respectful, be kind, be a good human. (Thank you for coming to my Ted talk.)
I love September! The clouds cleared, the aurora raged then the skies pulsed with crazy cosmic light. My first night in the Yukon was beyond words. Didn't sleep and I didn't care. Too much fun watching and capturing so much amazement. Thank you universe for such an epic show. I'll be back soon enough 🌌💜
My aesthetic is hiking in shorts and flip-flops while my phone is telling me it's -1° with a 100% chance of snow and then spending 10 minutes awkwardly hovering while I wait for people to finish taking their selfies in the middle of where I want to take a picture.
The trail was very muddy and flip-flops have zero grip but I'm accustomed to such poor decisions so it all worked out except that my feet got muddy. Washed them off later in a very fast moving mountain river that was very cold so all evidence of my poor choices was removed.
What a weekend it has been! When @shoretosummit invited me to join her and friends on a backcountry camping trip, that included hiking Pharaoh Peak, I jumped at the opportunity. This have been on my list for awhile. But, the thought of carrying a heavy pack in and camping was daunting 😥. But, I did it! Hahah, it was my first time carrying 25lbs (which started to feel like 40lbs halfway into the hike 😣) and hiking +35km in two days. And, boy, was this a challenge! I felt like I was moving like molasses (and probably was...😅🙈) Huge thanks to everyone (especially @shoretosummit) for waiting on my slow ass while I trudge along and for offering multiple times to lighten my load 🥰😅. I feel like I need to hit the gym harder before trying to embark on another one of these trips 🙈
“The fear is of environmental doom - that we’re all going to die.”
Victoria teens are participating in Climate Strike Canada's "No Future, No Children" campaign which asks young people to pledge that they will not have children until they are sure that the federal government is taking action on climate change.
The campaign launched Monday, with 190 children having pledged within an hour.
Teenage volunteers for the Green Party say the group is asking federal candidates from all parties to make clear in their platforms what they are doing to reduce emissions and address climate concerns.
Climate Strike Canada, which mobilized hundreds of students in May to skip school and march for climate action, is a network of students and activists that is not associated with any political party. Another large-scale school strike is scheduled for Sept. 27.
Rising numbers of children are being treated for “eco-anxiety”, experts have said, as they warn parents against “terrifying” their youngsters with talk of climate catastrophe.
