FC: Our North American Adventure Selena, Hannah and Emily
1: died in the Great battle of Point Pleasant. There are so many trees here! This makes the drive from town to town a little bit more enjoyable. We're heading to West Viginia tomorrow. | We got to Virginia and I was pretty suprised by the temperature. Even though it's the summer, locals have told me that it's pretty cold! But we arrived to a pretty mild day, and we were able to walk around in just a little sweater. We visited the Grand Banks, which is known all around, especially in Europe, for the large varieties of fish. Then we travelled to this cute little town called Point Pleasant. There we went to Shawnee Indian Alter Stone. It is a memorial to all the Shawnee indians that
2: Our trip into south Carolina from West Virginia was so much fun. Right away when we crossed the border we could notice a difference in the climate and vegitation. Seeing as it was summer it was very hot and humid, just what I like. Moving more into the interior there were a lot more marshes and was thick in vegitation. The winters here are competley different than the summers. The winters here are very harsh, very cold, and have a lot of snow. In other words, not a good place to go vacationing, if you know what I mean.
3: It's really humid here in the St. Lawrence Lowlands. The lakes and the sunsets are breathtaking. Some guy told us that the Great Lakes cooled the tempeature in the summer and by storing heat, they warmed surrounding areas in the winter! This is an amazing sunset we caught on film before heading off!
4: We arrived in Indiana in the middle of a hot, humid summer, an annual occurence. We explored the area a bit and decided to change our route. We turned around and headed back through St Lawrence and up into Regina. The weather here is hot. The summers are always super hot here apparantly. I thought that was kind of weird, considering the winters are very harsh and cold. Tomorrow we're going to head to Quebec to try out the new cultures and try to learn some french.
5: We spent a couple of days in Quebec before deciding it was best to continue on. We drove to Toronto to experiance the more mainstream tourist events in Canada. After two relaxing weeks of sightseeing, we boarded a plane back to our home province of British Columbia.
6: We flew into Vancouver for a bit of a break. As usual, it was raining and wasn't a very great welcome home. We drove and made the ferry home. We're only going to be back home for a couple of days before heading out to West Edmonton mall.
7: After our little break back home, it was good to get back on the road. We decided to rent a theme room at the Fantasy Hotel in West Edmonton Mall. We stayed in the Holly Wood room because we wanted to feel like rock stars. A realxing day by the pool was amazing, at the wave pool and all. After that we decided to go out for dinner. When we got outside it was really cold. It wasn't light out, but the moon was shining. I didn't realize that in the fall it could be so cold here already. We're going to be here for a couple days, then we're heading up to the Arctic. BRRRR. It's going to be cold.
8: After being in edmonton i got a shock being in the arctic. It was so cold, and there were a lot more animals. It was totally gorgeous with the tundra, and the crisp | white snow. Well this is the end of our trip. It was so much fun. After this trip we learned not only about traveling, but a lot of other stuff like dressing for different climate.
