Mentioned in my previous post, I am situated here on Vancouver Island for the summer. Before I started my Clinical rotation, my friend and I decided to head west and get a little taste of the Juan de Fuca Trail. Due to time restraints, we could only afford the minuscule 24 hours at this place. […]
Hello world, It is I, Charlotte, back in the blogging world. I apologize for not writing at all this past year. I have been keeping quite busy with school!
I have done a lot of hikes in my life so far, but this one in particular blew it out of the ball park for me. Assiniboine Provincial Park is situated nice and snug on the British Columbia and Alberta border. The route we took started us in Banff National Park, then we entered into […]

In peak season, sometimes MEC (or other outdoor stores) can run […]
