About The Banff Blog

Welcome to The Banff Blog! We’re excited to have you join us in our little section of the internet. By now, you probably know we run this website called “The Banff Blog.”

We’re Cameron Seagle and Natasha Alden, and on this site, you’ll find our experiences, photography, and informative travel guides from around the Canadian Rockies. We currently live in Canmore, Alberta, and love to explore our home.

We were nomadic for over three years traveling across six continents and visiting 80 countries while running our world travel blog called The World Pursuit. It took us over 600 blog posts, thousands of nights in different beds, living on North Carolina beaches, enjoying amazing African safaris, a few horrible meals, and tons of amazing ones until we chose to base ourselves in the Canadian Rockies. Now we travel for half the year and explore the mountains for the other half. We think our lives are rad and want to help our readers live an awesome life too!

Natasha Alden

The blonde in all these photos? It’s me! I love yoga pants, movies, snowboarding, animals, travel…and sushi – okay, I love many things. Now that we are a little better acquainted, let me tell you where this whole travel thing started. I grew up in the center of the mitten state. If you don’t know what I am talking about, just take your left hand and put it in front of your face. 

That is Michigan. As a child, I went on many family vacations but never truly left the country. Wanderlust started when I studied abroad in Australia. I didn’t know that this experience would change my life. Upon return, I vowed that I would take a backpacking trip around the world to celebrate after college.

Cameron Seagle

Hello, I’m Cameron, and I make up one-half of this blog.  I’m a big music fan, and I don’t discriminate. I could write a list of my favorite artists, but it would likely get out of hand! I have what some would call an addictive personality.  We both try to eat, and we’re about 90% vegan, can’t shake the sushi and cheese.

 I love to cook, and Natasha does the dishes, so I’m always trying out new vegetarian or vegan recipes — not sure who gets the better deal. I’m in all of this for the photos, food, beaches, mountains, adventure, and excellent hikes. We’ve also got a “healthy” addiction to adventure sports. My passions currently bounce around between mountaineering, snowboarding, mountain biking, and diving.
