Whenever we drive through the national parks that Highway 1 meanders through, I always make a point to stop at some of the points of interest along the way. While our ultimate destination might be the Okanagan, I can’t help but marvel at the amazing things we pass on the way.

The Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trail in Revelstoke National Park is one of my favourite stops. Accessible enough that even small children can manage it easily, it’s a unique way to stretch your legs after a few hours in the car. Especially if you live in the prairies.

The trees are — naturally — amazing, but difficult to photograph. But the undisturbed meadows that surround them look exactly like a scene off of the moon of Endor.
