Alberta: Remember To Breathe

26.October 2011

Our Journey


This is where I live now.

Where the mountains meet the sky and then drop to the most velvety landscape I have ever seen.

Where what looks flat is actually filled with coulees, and river valleys; rolling hills and fields as far as you can see.

Where I can watch the weather from miles away and be entranced by the clouds dancing in the sky.

Where, this year, I will learn to cross country ski, ice-walk, snow-shoe, dog sled and back country hike.

Where I am learning that we never travel enough in our own back yard.

The video is from Travel Alberta’s new Remember To Breathe campaign.

    Beautiful homage to my home province. The last point is so true. I’ve lived in Alberta for 27 years and there’s still a lot of things here I haven’t seen.
