Wide Open World



Writer, Photographer, Content Creator

Hi! I’m Ruby. I love spending time outside with my family and want to share that joy with others. My idea for Wide Open World came to me one day while camping across Alaska with my then 2 year old. I found there was a lack of resources for family travel and decided to do something about it.

I am a retired makeup artist turned storyteller. I believe that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. I also love to cook, and even more so love to eat, but writing about food it turns out, isn’t quite my specialty.

Where some family travel specialists cover amusement parks- I see nature as our playground. Our articles focus on undiscovered gems, unique environments, and towns that will leave you breathless. When not traveling, I spend most of my time in Valemount, B.C with my husband, daughter, and pup.

So grab a cup of tea, sit down, and plan your next adventure with us.
