Joffre Lakes Hike

After 4 summers I finally hiked the Joffre Lakes. There are three lakes and it’s an easy trail with a steep incline between the lakes. I found the hike from lake 2 to 3 easier and almost puked between lake 1 and 2. SCREW YOU ASTHMA.   





I would do it again. If you need a break, take a break. Go all the way to the top. Bring snacks/lunch and water. Take pictures. It’s about a 5-6 hour journey, including a picnic break.



The Paddle

My paddle is full of memories. As a child, I strived for it. I earned it. I deserve it. When it comes out of the shed, my childhood memories flood back.

B’nai Brith, proud of you am I.

It was a sentimental weekend…..doing what I love: Camping & Canoeing.


Cough Be Gone

Holy Mackerel. When I get sick, I get SICK! I blame this on being too busy and on a friend who shared her germs with me. Last week I began to feel a cough coming on and sure enough, Thursday BOOM I was sick. I took a few days off work and life and spent a lot of time taking medicine and sleeping. I slept and slept and slept. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Buckley’s pills are magical and not only have I been sleeping like a baby but I’ve been having wild and crazy dreams.

I haven’t been able to work out, ride my bike or do anything that exerts to much energy. I’m feeling anxious because I want to get on my bike and back to the gym and I’m scared I’m going to fall off the fitness wagon. I’m going to Winnipeg on Friday so I’ll have a few days away from my bike and the gym so for the next 3 days I’m going to do what I can to MOVE!

I’m ready to feel better ANY MOMENT NOW! Okay, thanks virus.


Pemberton Trails

I’m getting excited to bring out my bike (any day now) but in the meantime I’m adventuring around town by foot. I’ve been looping One Mile Lake (#64) and watching the lake defrost. So, I’m on the hunt for new trails. I thought I knew where the Valley Loop was (#55) but I ended up on some really muddy single track trail….which wasn’t the loop. That is okay because I saw a bald eagle!

I also walked around Collins Road, this weekend! There are some pretty spectacular views of Mt. Currie out there.

So, this weekend I’ll be walking the Narin Trail (#65) and I’ll have to attempt the Valley Loop again. How can I not be out there strollin’ in this fantastic weather?

Oh yah, with the help of Sylvie, I’ll begin biking these trails, too (well, the green and blue ones).
