As I mentioned just the other day, Grownup Girl has this “thing” about superheroes and Wolverine is no exception! Personally, I have to admit that I was surprised to discover that Wolverine is from Canada (I KNEW all the cool people came from Canada – sorry US friends!).
And I just learned that the film about “my guy” (I’ve decided Wolverine is my guy – after all, Hugh Jackman is one pretty handsome guy!) Wolverine is coming home for the Holidays on DVD and Blu-ray on December 3rd!
And, in honour of Wolverine’s Canadian heritage, and the release of the Wolverine on December 3rd, here are some things that you can do in Canada – well, you can definitely do them in Alberta!
1. Hit the slopes!
Alberta has numerous ski resorts that are both kid and adult friendly! Ski Banff is a resort in Mt. Norquay that is great for skiing, snowboarding and even tubing! This awesome snow spot is most famous because it is the Olympic training ground! (And, while we have our own great slopes in Southwestern Ontario, I still want to visit Banff for this experience!)
2. Ice Fishing
Back in 7th Grade, I remember a school trip that included going out and snowshoeing. I fell off my shoes (which sounds crazy but I can’t make this stuff up!) and haven’t tried it since! A friend of mine just bought a set for her entire family though – she swears by it and says it is a great activity for the family to enjoy together!
4. Eat at Rouge Restaurant
This delicious establishment was placed on a list of the Top 50 Restaurants in Canada (Vacay.ca). The ambiance is just as beautiful as the environment around you. What do you think The Wolverine would order? Maybe a salad?
5. Visit Dinosaur Provincial Park
Dinosaurs and The Wolverine, so much in common, right? Anyway, the Dinosaur Provincial Park is a must see if you are going to Alberta (my mom has been there and swears by it)! You can be involved in a dinosaur dig and even camp on the grounds! This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
So there’s some ideas of things The Wolverine can see and do (and you might want to consider doing for yourself – though I have to admit I’m not going to be ice fishing or snowshoeing with you – sorry!).
