  1. When I was 20, a friend and I drove from Detroit to visit my relatives in Edmonton, Alberta. It’s about a 2,200 mile drive and we made it in two days, with a stopover in North Dakota. You can do these things in your youth! We then drove west to the Canadian Rockies and their magnificent national parks of Jasper and Banff along the Continental Divide. From the Columbia Icefields at the meeting of the two parks, glacial meltwaters flow to 3 different oceans. I later touched on that trip in a story, and this is how it came out.

    Two nights ago, following a long drive from Madison, Kevin and I had stayed at a motel in Bismarck. The following day, we had lead-footed it across the Dakota wheat fields, past the Badlands, and into Montana, where the sprawling ranch lands were welded to the sky along a treeless horizon. As dusk neared, we turned north to cross the Alberta border, with the blue Rockies ranged like a distant parapet to the west. After we passed Calgary, the aurora borealis shimmered against a sky turned deep purple, and thousands of stars spread a soft glow across the prairie. By the time we reached our destination in Edmonton, my grandmother was already asleep, leaving my uncle to greet two adrenaline-and-caffeine-fueled, but weary travelers.

    • haha wow that sounds like so much fun and thank you for sharing such a wonderful story! The imagery that you paint with your words of Western Canada makes me want to travel…I have always wanted to take the train out west ( hope to do that one day)…What a beautiful memory πŸ™‚ I am sure your uncle had fun listening to your stories that night πŸ™‚

  2. As a little girl, running through the corn fields, feeling the heat from the rich soil under my feet and listening to the stalks sway back and forth from the summer breezes.

  3. Just being on the beach… playing, swimming, diving… All of it. πŸ™‚

  4. Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:
    HERE YA GO—-GET BUSY!!! πŸ™‚

  5. I will say going to Ghana to visit my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins for the first time when I was 17. The was the last and only time I saw my grandparents, so it will always be my favorite summer memory πŸ™‚

  6. I’m not sure I have a single favorite memory, there are so many! But I love adventures, and the first time I want to Los Angeles in the summer of 2010 is definitely one of the greatest summers I’ve ever had πŸ˜€ Beaches, Griffith Observatory, exploring parts of the city (Little Tokyo is one of my favorite districts!) It was 10 days of non-stop fun and excitement!

  7. Summer = Chilling with the fam and travelling

    Too many to pick! Whats yours? πŸ™‚

  8. Fun times, no single event, but many trips to beaches, time with family, the thrill of road trips to new places, vistas, nature to explore. I can see the seeds of my wanderlust and passion for nature! summertime for getting to play and explore. πŸ™‚

  9. I really liked waking up and knowing I didn’t have to go to school, could eat breakfast at a slow pace, choose when to go out and play and join friends. Sometimes I would go play with my brothers up in their treehouse, climbing and running games. It was fun when I was traveling to the beach on Lake Erie with my parents or going to Florida to see my grandparents, too. Smiles ,Robin

  10. Lots of water skiing, camping, hiking, picnics….all with family and friends. Memory upon memory of wonderful times. I agree….too many to mention. Thank you, Neha!! πŸ™‚
