I was walking this morning in my hometown and in the window of Lululemon on Beverly Drive, a sign caught my eye. It said, “Where do you go to let go” and it got me thinking, where is my happy place?
Of all the places on earth, heli-hiking in the Canadian Rockies is where I let go. On my personal bucket list for over 25 years, I had a chance to experience this magical vacation spot myself a few years ago. Then I went back the next year with a group so that others could experience this magic. For three days, a helicopter transports me to the mountaintops where I am far away from everything. There are literally no people except for a few others staying in the lodge. There are no buildings, traffic lights or roads. I spend my days hiking along the mountain ridges, overlooking the bluest lakes and come face-to-face with waterfalls. One day we may be walking among wildflowers through a meadow, and the next on a glacier. I’m in heaven. I de-stress. I’m happy. I’m going back again this summer. Want to join me?
