Kodiak Mountain Stone

Almond Buff Cut Fieldstone Kodiak Mountain Stone Calgary Lethbridge Fireplace 001

I was working with a customer today to help them plan out the manufactured stone that they wanted to have on their new fireplace. I showed them a number of photos on our website to help give them some ideas and as I was doing this I recognized that we really have helped a lot of people create some beautiful projects.

 

A fireplace is meant to be a central feature in a room and that is why it is so important to use the proper stone on it. The stone type, profile and color help to add the character you want that room to have.

 

Our company, Kodiak Mountain Stone, has a huge selection of natural stone and manufactured stone that you can choose from for your dream project.  Visit us online and follow us on social media for great, inspirational ideas.  If you want to know what your project would look like with stone on it, take a picture and upload it to the Kodiak Mountain Stone Visualizer (HERE) and see your dream come to life.

 

We have show rooms at the following locations:

A Day of Quadding at Crowsnest Pass

For the final weekend of summer before the kids are back in school we headed to the mountains of Crowsnest Pass. It was a great day of riding the quads and enjoying the views and the people we were with. The forest fires in Washington were still filling the sky with smoke but it was a relatively clear day and we had a great time.

Tia Heggie Basketball Highlights – Spring & Summer 2015

It was another fun summer following Tia around with her basketball. Unfortunately she suffered an early spring broken leg that slowed her down for a while but she healed up and finished strong. She played on the University of Lethbridge PEBL team in the spring and the U16 Basketball Alberta team during the summer.

Now it’s time for an exciting season of volleyball for Tia and football for Daxon!

Western Canada Summer Games 2015 – Wood Buffalo Alberta

We had the opportunity to spend the last week in Wood Buffalo (Fort McMurray) Alberta at the Western Canadian Summer Games.  The organizers of the event did a great job. Each event was well organized and the facilities were great. The opening ceremonies were great to watch!

The purpose for us to be at the games was to watch our daughter, Tia Heggie, play with the U16 Basketball Alberta women’s team. We are very proud of Tia and her team. They fought through some tough games and finished fourth overall.

These are some highlights of Tia in her first three games

Saint Lucia Tree Top Adventure Park Zip-Lines

Loved reminiscing about this trip from 2011! I recently found some old footage from a trip we took with some friends to the Caribbean. We spent a number of days cruising from island to island and had so much fun. One of the excursions we went on was at the Tree Top Adventure Park in St. Lucia.  The zip lines there were so much fun and the staff were great! If you will be in St. Lucia I highly recommend the Tree Top Adventure Park Zip Lines.

Bucket List Adventures

I have quite a large bucket list of things that I want to do an accomplish. But I have had the opportunity to knock quite a few things off that list. I’ve put together some clips of some of those things.

  6. Dog Sledding (with my wife – it was her present to me for my birthday)
  7. Swimming with dolphins on the Big Island of Hawaii (with my son and daughter)
  8. Visit Greece (with my wife)
  9. Fly gliders in Hawaii (so cool seeing the whales as we flew out over the ocean)
  10. Visit Africa (with my wife)
  11. Professional Rodeo Cowboy – Steer Wrestler (in the video: Innisfail Pro Rodeo, Red Deer Pro Rodeo, Calgary Stampede)
  12. Razr and Dirt Biking in the mountains

More Fun… Zip-Lines at Whitefish Mountain

Last week I had the opportunity to take a youth group from our church down to the West Glacier area in Montana to camp.  It is a beautiful area in the mountains with a lot to do.  We spent a day with Glacier Raft Company doing some white water rafting.  The water levels were lower than average the it was a little cool that day, but we still had an excellent time.  I would definitely recommend Glacier Raft Company.

We also spent a day at Whitefish Mountain. I have spent a lot of time on the mountain skiing in the winters but I’ve never experienced any of their summer adventures before.  Some of our group spent their time in the Aerial Adventure Park and had a great time. I took a group on the Zip-Line Tours and we loved every minute of it. Soaring high above the ski slopes, over ravines & through the trees was a great experience. With some of the lines reaching up to 1,900 feet in length and as high as 300 feet above the trees it was a great adventure. We had the opportunity to enjoy seven different lines, all with breathtaking  views of the mountains.  It’s definitely an activity I’m happy to refer others to.

This is a short video of three of the zip-lines at Whitefish Mountain

Tia Heggie Point Guard – Basketball 2014/2015

Tia and her team had a great season of basketball in 2014/2015. Tia was the point guard of the team and is looking forward to entering high school next year to play at the next level.  This summer she is playing for Basketball Alberta again on the U16 Girls team.  They will be playing in the Seattle Summer Showcase from July 10-12, 2015 and then will be headed north to Langley BC for some exhibition games.  After these games their next big event is the Western Canadian Summer Games in Wood Buffalo AB that begin on August 7.

This is a highlight video of Tia with her Grade 9 Cardston Cougar Team.

This spring Tia also made the University of Lethbridge PEBL (Prairie Elite Basketball League) U17 team.  Unfortunately during their first tournament at the University of Alberta she broke a bone in her leg and didn’t get to play the entire season.  But this video shows some highlights from her first couple games at the UofA tournament.  She’s excited to be healed up and ready for Alberta Ball now. (She is #3 on the blue and white team)

D. Jeff Heggie Steer Wrestling… Glory Days

Going through some old videos and found my rodeo tapes. This video includes rodeos from when I was in the Chinook Rodeo Association, the Foothill Cowboys Association, the Canadian Intercollegiate Rodeo Association and the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association.  I miss doing this!

This video was one that my wife put together when we got married in 1996. It’s fun to watch, she included a lot of my wrecks from high school rodeo. Rodeo was a big part of our life when we got married. In fact, we were married on a Tuesday because I had rodeos from Wednesday through Sunday that week!
