Canadian Rockies Road Trip!

Beautiful scenery, snow, negative temperatures and hot tub fun times equals a brilliant long weekend away!

This past weekend I went on a road trip through the beautiful Rocky Mountains which cross the states of British Columbia and Alberta! Canada gets a public holiday for Remembrance Day so we made the most of this extra day off and left UBC on Friday and came back Tuesday night. A group of 19 of us went up in 4 hired cars. The journey through the mountains takes about 10 hours but it hardly felt like we were in the car that long as we stopped along the way. The roads were good to drive on, only a few scary moments when driving through snowy and icy roads eek!

We stayed two nights in a cabin outside of the town of Golden, BC, followed by 2 nights in a hostel in Lake Louise. The cabin slept 10 but we managed to cram all 19 of us in, and it had a hot tub overlooking the mountains!

Over the next few days we explored Golden, Kicking Horse Mountain, Banff, Mount Sulphur, Lake Louise and Emerald Lake. I've included a few pics of the trip below:

Overall, was an amazing weekend away! I had an exam 2 days after I got back which I literally did an hour study for, think I only just passed haha. So after only 2 days back at UBC, I'm off to Portland, Oregon in the US tomorrow for a weekend away, then the following week it is the Whistler opening weekend - November is such a busy month! Still having the time of my life over here, but this trip is going way to quickly for my liking, don't want to go back to normal life in Brisi haha! Hope your all well back home, lots of love Alana xx
