This trail is one of the best place in David Thompson Country to start the hiking season. The snow is gone from the valley, yet ice features are still visible in the canyons along the way. Flowers are starting to pop up along the trail and we even came across bighorn sheep grazing in the sun above the Coral Creek canyon, near our lunch spot.

A day filled with exploring Central Alberta communities and learning about things to do in the area. This fast paced tour will take us to a number of attractions where you'll learn about a wide variety of activities for your guests to enjoy on their next visit.

This is a different type of tour than what we've done in past years. We're heading out for a morning walk of downtown, looking at public art and art galleries, getting a chance to get hands-on and maybe a little dirty working on our own masterpiece before heading out into Waskasoo Park for a different type of experience combining art, local cultures and nature.

Head out for the day discovering a variety of options for active family adventures along the QE2 corridor. You'll get to play, experience some of the activities available for kids and parents as well as learning more about some of the area's attractions.

Explore the west end of David Thompson Country, from the historic mining town of Nordegg to the stunning Bighorn Canyon and Crescent Falls. Take in the views along Abraham Lake on a hike, heli-tour or horseback riding adventure. Discover the Kootenay Plains with their rich natural and human history.

Explore Central Alberta's local food, from the producers to the chefs who make these local ingredients into delicious meals, On this tour we'll be visiting farms, a cheesery, restaurants and local breweries where you'll learn about the rich experiences available to your guests.

The Experience Experts program is offered by Tourism Red Deer to help local industry employees learn more about the city and region so that they can share those experiences with visitors. For the past 3 years we've worked with them to offer a series of tours taking front-line staff to the attractions so that they can experience first hand the many things to see and do in the area.

We've said more than once that a key to spending more time playing in the snow is to have a few quick and delicious meals that can be put together without too much effort.

This simple recipe fits that category. It's nearly as easy as making store bought meatballs and taste so much better after a day spent outside.
