September 7, 2004 was our last night on the road and the end of our Cross-Canada journey. As we watched the dying embers in the last (and ironically one of the few) fire we were to build we reflected on our long journey and recalled some of our favorite places and memories. We have shared these below.
The most commonly asked question we get is where our favorite spot is in the country. We are not being evasive when we say we don't have one. This is such a huge, wonderful and varied country that it is simply impossible to name one favorite place. We can't even agree between the two of us! We can however, give you several of our favorite places. Keep in mind however, that these places are not always a provinces biggest, best or most spectacular. They are just places that we really liked.
