Cross-continentals.

New Zealand, being relatively small in size (comparative to Alberta), was pretty easy to get to know over the course of our time there.  Canada on the other hand, is a much different story.

Upon our return, we realized we hardly knew our home country and continent in comparison to the way we had come to know and appreciate New Zealand.  To remedy this, summer of 2014 would hold a cross-continental road trip for us, with a final destination of West Quaco, New Brunswick.

After spending a few days in Edmonton celebrating Canada Day and catching up with friends, we packed up our 2000 Toyota Corolla (crossing our fingers and hoping she lives up to her longevous Toyota reputation) and hit the road.

First stop: Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the place of Mel’s birth.

We had a nice visit with Nana and Auntie Judy, and shared a coffee with a high school friend of Brendon’s, Jordan, and his wife, Lauren.

From here, we began our venture south to the destination of Rapid City, South Dakota.

We met up with our friend Josh and the Corys (B’s friend Cory and his wife, also named Cory) who are due with their baby any day now.  Cory and I even fit an impromptu maternity shoot.

The Corys were gracious hosts and awesome tour guides around their quaint city, which features statues of all the former US presidents on the street corners.

We posed for a photo with John Adams.

The scenery through South Dakota was actually quite striking at times.  They had a neat badlands region just outside of Rapid City, and some stunning rock formations which jetted starkly out of the flat surrounds.

From there, we were on to Kansas City.  More on this in the next post.

    • Haha, yep. 😉 Actually, I think it might be his cousin, Samuel, but either way, from the same family line. Thanks for the comment, Dad! Hope things are well in St. Albert.
