I still would love to see the Maritimes and visit Sassie....

I would love to go to the coffee houses in Toronto when my aunt and her girlfriend went to the University there and practically lived on Avenue Road - we had great letters and phone calls about this
fantastic area of Toronto....I have no idea what it is like now...

I would like to revisit my father's family properties near Cochrane, Alberta. The original house is still there - when they finally got around to building a real house.

Another trip to Long Beach on the west coast of Vancouver Island, when I was a little kid - we took small aircraft and landed on the beach (impossible now).... caught critters (ugh) to eat and the sand was as hard as cement and so beautiful....I was terrified and fascinated at the same time. It's all developed now - another 'civilized' sign of regress not progress.

I've really never done much traveling in the south west of alberta.

And I'd love to visit either coast, anywhere. I haven't traveled nearly enough. I'd want to just drive, take in as much as possible.

They are the tallest falls in Canada located in Strathcona Provincial Park. First you must run nearly the entire length of Great Central Lake (most people hire a boat a the local lodge) then hike in 16 km to the base of the falls. For the view shown in the picture you have to hike a further couple kms up a steep hillside toward Love Lake.

I just looked it up for myself. Amazing stuff. Apparently it's a 7 hour hike, which'd make it tough to get back during daylight... I'd love to give it a go, though

What I would actually love to do is go cross country via rail and see it all.

Definately want to do the Calgary to Vancouver run. They have all inclusive class now so that would be the way to go.

I think I would like a trip into the Newfoundland interior. Probably by float plane if I had my druthers.

From Sooke north up the west coast of Vancouver Island by boat and on to the Queen Charlotte Islands then back again down the coast of the mainland.

Living in High Level, we knew plenty of 'good ol' boys' from the oil patch who had their own float planes, and would fly up to the NWT on a regular basis to land on remote little lakes, go fishing/hunting/camping. I'd have loved to head out on one of those excursions. Alas, they hated bringing women along. *shrugs*
