Victoria, B.C., residents Marco Khalil and Caroline West, who together own a business selling vintage goods, found a small school bus for sale on Craigslist. They turned the 1979 bus into a vacation home — a mobile cabin — that not only serves as a backyard cabin on their property, but can serve as a pop-up shop for their business.

Yellowstone’s Grand Prismatic is named for its brilliant colouration. The colour spectrum that ranges from deep blue to burnt red is the product of trillions of thermophiles, or bacterial microorganisms, which flourish in hot waters. Different temperatures determine the hue, and the center of the pool is sterile due to extreme heat (70 °C or 160 °F) leaving the intrinsic blue color of water.
