Garibaldi Provincial Park | Winter Camping on the Lake

Song in Headphones: Place to Be For years, Garibaldi Lake has been on my hiking to-do list. In the summer, it draws many people near and far; I mean, why wouldn’t it. As soon as you complete your descend to the lake, the vast enclosed body of water takes you back. It’s massive, blue and incredibly…

Overnight at Wedgemount Lake

This past weekend I had the amazing chance to hike (what is now) my favourite hike in the Garibaldi region. Wedgemount Lake – geographically speaking – is situated in between Whistler and Pemberton. About a 2.5 hour drive from Vancouver, on a nice sunny day (like we had) made for a enjoyable drive along the…

3 Days in Tofino | Canada’s Surfer’s Paradise

The town of Tofino situates itself on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It’s nestled at the base of the Clayoquot Sound and opens up to the vast pacific.

Joffre Lakes Provincial Park | Camping Around Surreal Beauty

The beautiful Joffre Lakes are located just outside of Pemberton, British Columbia. Its serene beauty will take you away. For years, Joffre Lakes has been a dream backpacking trip I’ve wanted to do. Finally, I was able to experience trek it along side two amazing co-workers. The last backcountry camping trip I had done was…

Wells Gray Provincial Park | Canoeing Murtle Lake: Pt. 2

Song in Headphones: Open Shores A Prologue | My arms were on fire. I was so exhausted it was to a point I wasn’t even looking up. My arms were moving in this repetitive motion, I was unconscious of my other surroundings. I remember being disillusioned, looking at the tree line and seeing us move maybe…

Wells Gray Provincial Park | Canoeing Murtle Lake: Pt. 1

Song in Headphones: Renegades A Prologue | It’s 5:30 am. Peeled out of my sleeping bag, I crawl out of my tent; refreshed, awake and grateful. The sun and the beautiful swainson’s thrush was my alarm this morning. It’s crisp outside, almost cold; cold enough to throw on a fleece. I look out onto the…

Indian Canyon | Hiking Fern Canyon Trail

It was day 3 in Palm Springs, and I was already getting cabin fever that morning. Before I left for Palm Springs, I had already decided I would spend a few of those days outside in the wilderness other than beside a chlorinated pool. A lot of my research time was spent looking into the…

Garibaldi Provincial Park | Welcoming 2015 on the Elfin Trail

I think it’s safe to say that Garibaldi has occupied a part of my heart; particularly the Elfin Lake trail. I snowshoed this trail back in February 2014 with the similar group of close friends. This time around a few of us attempted the glorious recreation of cross-country skiing.

Garibaldi Provincial Park | Expedition to Elfin Lakes

What is snowshoeing?! It’s without a doubt, always a question that comes up whenever I meet people who aren’t from the great North. When it gets to the explaining part, it usually ends in humiliation because it sounds ridiculous. Yea, sure call them tennis rackets. What they don’t know is how much of a life…

Commence: This Blog-Thing of Mine

I’ve never blogged before, let alone written articles for people to read. Something about it has always terrified me. Though…fear not! I decided to start up this blog and become the hiatus hunnie I’ve always wanted to be. No more being scared!
