"Just a note to let you know how much we appreciate your book, Out 'N About. This is my first trip to the area (but my husband's second). We are here with our good friends from Denmark. Each day we have consulted your book to find activities that we will all enjoy. And every one has lived up to your description! Thanks so much for contributing to the success of our visit to your beautiful area." - All my Best, Carol Schroeder, Madison WI, September 2012
"Dear Donna, My husband and I have just spend 5 days in Canmore and we have read and used your book a lot. I really like the way you have written it. It is both very personal and very informative with a variety of hikes. We just wish we had had some time in that beautiful area. We will without hesitation recommend your book to travellers to your beautiful area. And we will love to come back again." -Yours, Annette Jessen, Netherlands, October 2012
"I just wanted to send you a note on a personal level. I love your book!! I have read it, cover to cover a few times and highlighted and underlined so many adventures I want to take. I want to purchse a copy for my friend in Airdire, .... You'll be happy to know it even got me started on my 1st hike, which was fantastic, up to upper falls in Johnson Canyon on the weekend."

Hello and welcome to Banff, Canmore and area! My book continues to evolve over 22 years of visiting and finally living in the beautiful Bow Valley with my family for the past 7 years. I felt it was time to write an activity guide that the majority of people young and old, couples, singles or families can really enjoy while visiting our wonderful and scenic Banff, Canmore and surrounding areas. This guide book isn't written with the "Über outdoors person" in mind. Instead it's meant to be lighthearted and fun. I've geared it to those looking for Rocky Mountain excursions that don't require a huge drive, heavy backpack, sore feet or kids forever whining "are we there yet?" And, it's small and light enough to carry with you wherever you go.
Many of the excursions listed in Out'n About are short, half day adventures that only locals know about. They are easy to find and navigate without any guesswork. Most are free, but some guided or tour excursions I've highlighted do have fees. Out'n About is available in local Banff and Canmore bookstores, retail and many resort locations as well in iBooks multimedia format and on Amazon.com. I hope you enjoy it and please do let me know if you need more ideas on what to do in any season while visiting us.
