#RunningTo Week 5 in Review: Gopher Hole Museum, Canadian Rockies, Vancouver

There’s no time. NO TIME. I just have to show you guys this:

#RunningTo: Gopher Hole Museum

Just a couple dead gophers having a barbecue.

And this:

Just a trio of dead gophers jamming out.

And this and this and this:

Just a dead gopher fireman pretending to be dead.

#RunningTo: Gopher Hole Museum

Just a dead gopher minister preaching while a dead gopher sleeps and a dead naked gopher angel hovers overhead with a harp.

#RunningTo: Gopher Hole Museum

Just a dead albino gopher with satanic eyes trying to lasso a dead clown gopher.

The Gopher Hole Museum basically altered the very course of my life. I might ditch every dream I’ve ever dreamt just to volunteer in the same vicinity of a couple dozen dead/dressed gophers. I mean WOULDN’T YOU?

First the gopher body without the head…

…and now the gopher head without the body.

But guys, the Gopher Hole Museum was only the beginning of a truly momentous week. Check out some of my favorite moments from Alberta and then across the stunning Canadian Rockies to British Columbia!

#RunningTo: Lake Louise

Lake Louise: the bluest coldest most breathtaking water I’ve ever seen.

COLDEST GLACIER WATER EVER BUT OH SO GOOD.

#RunningTo: Vancouver

Soccer in Vancouver. No big.

#RunningTo: Vancouver, BC

I rented a bike for 6 hours and rode all over Vancouver! Life-infusing doesn’t describe half of it.

#RunningTo: Vancouver, Canadian Flag

I couldn’t find an American flag on Independence Day. Close enough?

#RunningTo: Vancouver, American Flag

OK, so I did happen to find an American flag in Vancouver on Independence Day. God bless Canada.

Have you ever spent Independence Day in another country? How did you celebrate?

AND MORE IMPORTANTLY WHICH DEAD GOPHER IS YOUR FAVORITE?

  • Rebecka

    Dead naked gopher angel is my favorite, it will probably give me nightmares, though!

  • Andy

    I was in Peru once for the 4th of July and celebrated it cooking smores with the other North Americans over a gas stove. Also my favorite gophers are the firefighter gophers tripping each other.

    Um, the gopher museum sounds like the most legit place in America. Definitely on my bucket list to visit now.

    • Um, the dead gophers are in Canada.

        DANG IT! Why does Canada get the good stuff? They send us Beiber and then hold onto the Gopher hole museum?
