CHASE SOME WATERFALLS
From Lundbreck to Athabasca, where there are mountains, there are also plenty of breathtaking waterfalls. This week we’d recommend seeing as many of them as you can, but not just because it’ll give you something to do. This season is actually the best time to go waterfalls watching due to the water pressure being so high from all of the ice melting and trust us, you won’t want to miss out on all of the action.
REALIZE YOUR DREAM OF BEING AN HBO STAR
Do you have big dreams of being on the small screen? Well, Alberta, now is your chance because HBO has begun casting extras for their upcoming live adaptation of The Last Of Us, a post-apocalyptic video game that sold over 17 million copies worldwide.
