Trip to Wonderland aka British Columbia

We've been meaning to take a trip to BC for a long time so I finally took some time off work, we packed up our bags (most important things first - Tim's toys and the cameras :)) and were on our way to the Echanted Forest. We booked the Three Valley Gap hotel which is about 18 km away from the Enchanted Forest (nice hotel, btw, highly recommend if you're travelling that way....though they don't have a microwave). The location is beautiful!! So worth almost a 6-hour drive! We did make a few stops so Tim could ride his scooter and stop asking: "Are we there yet? Are we there yet?" :)...haha..:) We totally forgot about the time difference and were an hour early for the check-in but they were kind enough to let us into our room right away and didn't make us wait.

First we went to see the Crazy Creek. As we were walking across the suspension bridge I could just absorb all the moisture coming from the waterfall (those of you who are from Calgary know what I'm talking about! :)), it's gorgeous there! I mean trees are blooming and the flowers are blossoming, it's summer there already! wow. We didn't have time to check out the Enchanted Forest the same day as they were closing at 6 pm and one hour wouldn't be enough to see everything so we decided to come back the next morning. I did buy a pair of beautiful wooden earrings at the gift shop though, I don't care it takes me 2 minutes to put them on. Each. They're just really pretty and unique.:) I wish we had more time to spend in BC, I'd go back in a heartbeat. Anyone with me?? :)






















Honestly I was not that afraid to walk on the glass floor of the Calgary Tower than climbing this tree house. Go figure!
