The photo challenge theme this week is “Going Back…” Going Back [to, where, when, … fill in the blank] is the general idea. At first, I was stumped. The beauty of being retired is we have the time to revisit places from the past and reestablish connections with those friends you’ve lost touch with; I’ve done both. But since this is a photo challenge and I didn’t really have any photo captures depicting those “Go Back” moments, I decided to expand on my recent reminiscing Instagram post.
Traveling Back to Canada in Photos
Google likes to remind me of my event anniversary and just this week, we were in Canada 3 years ago. I even posted on our instagram that I was reminiscing before I knew what my photo challenge was for the week. The reminder prompted me to revisit our Canada trip photos from 3 years ago.
With summer’s peak crowds gone and temperatures cool but pleasant, September was a great time to visit the area.
Finding those photos sparked a desire to head back up to BC. Maybe we’d revisit the parks we’ve been too but I’d like to just keep exploring the countryside.
Going Back …
It’s only been 3 years, but a lot has changed in our travels. We no longer have the aging Lance Camper and now have our custom designed and built rig providing much more comfort and the ability to go further and do more. Oh, how I can’t wait to do more in Canada in our new rig.
Here’s a great sampling of our time in Canada. Further below I linked in the related blog posts for your reading and picture viewing pleasure.

About the Challenge
I stumbled across a weekly photo challenge and have participated for a few weeks now. Sunday Stills hosted by Terri on her blog, SecondWindLeisure blog, is where I found the challenge. I’ll endeavor to capture a fresh image that fits the theme and also share a few photos from our archives. For me, the photos all tie back to memories of our life and travels together. Hope you find them interesting and enjoyable. Enjoy Terri’s post “Going Back? …”
Beautiful I would love to travel more of the Canadian wilderness. I haven’t been too many places in Canada but would love to visit more.
Just loved the pictures having not travelled extensively in your country.
I’m so glad you were inspired to share your going back photos of Canada! I get prompts from Google, too and I love looking back at those special times. Your images are spectacular and I’m hoping to get to Banff soon as it is not terribly far from where live in Washington. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous photos on Sunday Stills and the extra shout out about the feature 😁

When we left Banff we needed two overnights to get to eastern WA and then spent time in the Mt. Baker area before landing in Everett (eldest kid live there). Loved going along the highway seeing the Ross Lake and Baker area.
