    Canadian Rockies by Horseback

    $0.00

    Each summer some of my friends and I try to do an equestrian vacation.  In early 2016, one friend, who lives in Canada, discovered the web page for the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies (www.trailridevacations.com). After looking at this myself, we decided this would be our trip for 2016 and sent in our deposits. We were soon joined by 2 of my friends from Georgia and another friend from Ohio. Our trip would be in Waterton Lakes National Park in the Province of Alberta, Canada, the sister park to Glacier National Park in Montana. None of us had been to this park before.

    A Trip Back In Time - Grand Union Hotel: Fort Benton, Montana

    $0.00

    If your travels take you near Great Falls, Montana, then please add a couple nights and visit the Grand Union Hotel in Fort Benton. Located 36 miles north of Great Falls, this is Montana’s oldest operating hotel. Built in 1882, 7 years before Montana became a state and at the height of the Steamboat era, this property cost $50,000 to construct and $150,000 to furnish. It ran on hard times in the 1980’s and had to close, but thanks to Jim and Cheryl Gagnon, Montana natives, the hotel was purchased by them in 1997, restored and then reopened in 1999. It is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

  10. The Wild Camel Expedition

    The Wild Camel Expedition

    $0.00

    The wild camel (Camelus ferus) is a critically endangered animal residing in very remote and inhospitable areas of Mongolia and parts of China adjacent to or in the Gobi Desert.  There are less than 1000 surviving with numbers declining each year due to environmental and human pressures.  Scientists at the Institute of Population Genetics at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna have recently confirmed the two-humped wild camel to be a separate species from the domestic two-humped Bactrian or single-humped Dromedary camels.  Their ancestral lineage diverged from the common ancestors of current camels 700,000 years before current camel species developed.
