This Canadian operated resort is off the grid and we loved the location – about a 15 min drive to the busy main town.

It’s been about 6 years since my last hair donation and I’ve been talking about this for a while now. It’s go time. I’m chopping off my locks in hopes of raising a good chunk of cash for the Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta!
