Cashew, Cranberry, Hemp Heart Bars

Song in Headphones: Genghis Khan (I took dance breaks while writing this) If you find you’re in a rush some mornings, grab one of these on the way to work/school with an apple — you’re set till lunch! I sometimes eat one before a run to keep me going, and they are especially great for hiking….

Keyhole Hotsprings, BC

Music in Headphones: Holocene  The Keyhole Hotsprings are located about 40 or so km north of Pemberton. The trail itself is a nice 2km’s, but the logging road to get there is long and grueling. Potholes galore!

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…

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…

Ash | Navy | Pine

Song in Headphones: Yellow This past weekend, I met with my dear friend and fellow blogger-in-crime, lttltox. We took on the day, outfits in hand, and cameras fully charged. We actually ended up each shooting four different outfits (this one was the first). It was great, we started off bumbling around Richmond to a few other locations, and…
