Whitewater Rafting – South Fork American River (CA)
During our visit to Murphys this summer, in the Calaveras County, gold rush era town in Northern California, we had an opportunity to go rafting on the American river. As it turns out, our daughter’s boyfriend James is one of the guides for O.A.R.S rafting company and he invited the whole group of his Croatian quests to the South Fork American River for one rafting adventure.

The big lone bull stepped out of the aspens near sundown.
“What do you think?” asked my friend Phil Despins, wondering aloud whether I shared his hunch that this animal might be dangerous. One thing was clear to us: we were not in a good position tactically for a sudden encounter with wild bison here on the southwest apron of isolated Prince Albert National Park, three hours north of Saskatoon.

Do you remember learning to ride a bike?
I don’t mean those first heady moments of awkwardness and freedom. But the process of becoming truly comfortable on the bike—all the things that you had to figure out the hard way, even as an adult. Things that seem like second nature now, so obvious and easy that it’s hard to remember your early growing pains.

The magnificent bridges and bicycle trails of Edmonton’s river valley
Edmonton’s river valley is by far its most compelling natural attraction and one of its best kept secrets – even among many of the city’s own residents.

Oh the shame of being married to a MAMIL (that’s a Middle Aged Man In Lycra)
Jennie Price from Surrey is a cycling widow. Her husband Richard’s transformation began five years ago. To get fit, he bought a road bike but soon became obsessed. Now he spends hours in the saddle. He has also spent a fortune on bikes, cycling clothing and gadgets.

The Santa Clara Loop near St. George
While visiting St. George with our rented car during the stay in Las Vegas last summer, Vera and I decided to explore surrounding area as we heard about some interesting sites near by. We wanted to taste the Southern Utah in only few hours that we had available, because we were returning to Vegas before the end of the day.

The getaway – A Weekend in Bragg Creek
 When the first English settlers arrived in Bragg Creek, few put down permanent roots. A common complaint was that the frost-damaged grasses provided little nutrition for wintering livestock. “A man cannot feed his family on scenery,” remarked one settler as he bid farewell. Ironically, a century later, the picturesque forests are what draw many visitors to Bragg Creek.
