Bow Valley Provincial Park is one of our favorite places to explore as a family in the Spring. The park is located 45 minutes west of Calgary just off the TransCanada Highway, and is the perfect distance for a family day trip or early camping trip when you want to try out your trailer for the first time of the year. By May, you can easily enjoy snow-free hiking in this park, enjoy wild flowers in abundance and soak up some early spring sunshine. Here are my top picks for ways to enjoy the park with your family this Spring.

Most often, backyard barbecues are fired up to cook meat - burgers and steak, generally - and almost always used at dinnertime. It’s a shame that such a useful cooking tool rarely sees its full potential - outdoor grills provide high, direct heat that’s ideal for cooking much more than beef. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
