A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Icefields Parkway: Alberta, Canada

Icefields Parkway: Alberta, Canada

Before driving between Jasper and Banff we had read how the Icefields Parkway is one of the most of scenic drives in North America. We have been on a lot of road trips all over the world, so we were a little hesitant to believe this to be true. However, once we embarked on our trip we were constantly craning our necks to look out the windows and repeatedly oohed and aahhed our way down the road. We have seen a lot of beautiful scenery in our lifetime and the Icefields Parkway is right up there.   


As we were driving we got really hungry and decided to pull over at Vermillion Lake for a picnic lunch. Once again, our expectations were low, but WOW! Such a gorgeous lake and literally right off the side of the road. Ever since we visited Iceland and found ourselves time and time again with nowhere to eat we have brought food with us on vacation. One of the best things we have done when we visit more remote locations is pack a plastic bin full of food in our car. Oftentimes this consists of: 

Easily reheated boxed soups

Not easily injured fruit and vegetables like apples, grapes, carrots etc.  

Chocolate bars which can be easily divided and enjoyed

A loaf of bread which makes the soup more filling

Water, lots and lots of water
