We spend a lot of time outdoors. Out and About with the GeoKs (JEE-oh-kays) describes the best (and worst) of our hiking, biking, snowshoeing, geocaching and other adventures (mostly) in the Canadian Rockies. Mrs. GeoK does the writing and everyone in the family contributes photos.
Planning an adventure in the Canadian Rockies?
If you’re planning a trip to our part of the world, we hope our stories and photographs will help you choose from among the many activities and trails on offer in and around Calgary, Kananaskis, Canmore, Banff and Yoho.
In deciding whether our experiences are relevant to your trip planning, you should know that we generally avoid pay-to-play experiences. Also, we like hot showers, good food and comfortable beds, so our Canadian Rockies adventures are almost exclusively day trips.
Planning a hiking/outdoor adventure trip elsewhere?
We’ve traveled a fair bit, so Out and About with the GeoKs also recounts our geocaching, hiking and other adventures in the Bahamas, Iceland, New Zealand, England and another dozen or so countries. [Note to self: reorganize these posts by country, so they’re easier to find. In the meanwhile, you’d best to use the search function.]
Are museums, art galleries and urban adventures more your thing?
We bike and walk (extensively) in Calgary and Canmore. Our entire family is into photography. Since joining the Beakerhead photo crew in 2013, Mrs. GeoK has explored art galleries, museums and other Calgary attractions; many of those explorations turned into blog posts. So if urban adventures are your thing, posts in the Creative Calgary or Creative Canmore/Banff categories will be most relevant.

Comments are always welcome. In fact, reader comments often lead us to discover other interesting blogs or to plan a new adventure.
If you prefer email, geoks at shaw dot ca should get through.

Would love to meet you on a trail someday soon. Thanks for visiting!
