First Things First.

As I'm planning on sharing a very special place with you, nature, I want to get this out of the way first. There is an etiquette to going out and hiking that many people unfortunately do not follow. If you're out there and enjoying the beauty that this island has to offer you then you... Continue Reading →

Bedwell Lake

Bedwell Lake is the first half of a large hike that I did with Ann recently where we ended up at Cream Lake. It was all too much to put into one post so I split them up and this is the hike into Bedwell Lake and our adventures there. So we get to the... Continue Reading →

Mount Prevost

This peak was on my list for a long time. It’s the big mound that towers over the town of Duncan and just screams for me to be on top of it. I’m so weak when mountains call to me. I honestly and truly thought that this mountain would have a pretty trash view since... Continue Reading →

Mount Finlayson

This hike is one of the more deceiving hikes as it’s only 3.1 km round trip but with 373 m of elevation gain in that short space you’ll be wheezing – if you’re me. This hike begins at a beautiful stream where the salmon run in the fall and the large trees cascade all around... Continue Reading →

Book of the Month; May

For May I’m going to recommend a book that brings you right into nature and adventuring, two things I’m missing detrimentally at the moment. May’s book of the month is “A walk in the woods” by Bill Bryson. This book is a true story about Bill going on the extremely unlikely journey along the Appalachian... Continue Reading →

The Story of Baja Jill

When down in Mexico I had so many adventures, some of which were life changing. One of those adventures was domesticating and falling in love with a stray dog. One of the first days that we arrived to a small town on the Baja in Mexico we had seen this skinny black dog in the... Continue Reading →

Cumberland China Bowls

The China Bowls are a really neat formation of rocks that is quite beautiful on its own but is absolutely mesmerizing when the creek flows through them. I have been here twice, once in the summer when they were pretty dried up and once in the winter when the water was rushing through them creating... Continue Reading →

Castle Peak

If you’re looking for a long, gloriously scenic, butt-kicking hike then this is the one for you. Get ready to have your mind blown multiple times in a row on this extraordinary adventure. Castle Peak is an in-and-out trail with a loop on the second large section. The loop will take you to multiple scenic... Continue Reading →

Lone Tree Hill

Lone Tree Hill is a super popular hike that you can do in under half an hour blindfolded walking backwards. Every time I do this “hike” (which is just barely allowed to have that word used for it) I see so many people and they all have their dogs (which is great) and I’m so... Continue Reading →

Book of the Month; April

For the month of April I think we’re in need of a light, happy, funny, springtime novel, so the book of the month is “The Rosie Project” by Graeme Simsion.  The Rosie project is a romantic comedy that follows an autistic man named Don. Don decides that he is tired of wasting his time with... Continue Reading →
