A Tale of Two Trails: Part 2 - Tikwalus Heritage Trail

In my last trail report, I shared my thoughts on the famous Sea-to-Summit trail in Squamish. For my final hike in BC before moving away to Ontario, Chris and I went to the the Tikwalus Heritage trail for a one-night backpacking trip other side of the lower mainland, north of Hope.

A Tale of Two Vancouver-Area Trails: Part 1 - Sea to Summit Trail

Once I knew that I only had 2½ months left before leaving BC, I picked out a couple of hikes to do before heading off for good. I chose two that had similar stats, but on opposite sides of Vancouver, the Tikwalus Heritage Trail north of Hope, and the Sea-to-Summit Trail in Squamish.

Winter Camping at Garabaldi Lake: The Search for a Snowy Mountain Sunrise

Chris and I had yet to get out on a winter backpacking trip this year. We had wanted to snowshoe up to Garabaldi Lake closer to January, but our schedule and weather never seem to work out. I always thought that Garabaldi Lake had the potential for a gorgeous winter sunrise...

Rucking: Practical Fitness Training for Hikers, Backpackers (Or Anyone!)

I recently heard about a new trending form of exercise called “rucking.” Rucking is simply going for a walk or hike while carrying a ruck sack packed with weight to add resistance. I laughed at the concept at first, asking "Isn't that just traditional backpacking?".

Snowshoes vs. Microspikes: What to Wear for Winter Hiking

One thing that I have noticed when I go out hiking/snowshoeing in the mountains at winter here in the Vancouver area is that many people only have snowshoes, so that is what they bring with them, no matter what the conditions are. This is far from optimal, possibly even dangerous...

Dehydrated Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai Backpacker Camp Meal - Keto, Low-Carb, Vegan Option

Pad Thai has always been one of the common Asian offerings for dehydrated meals for backpacking. To make it keto, I replaced the usual rice noodles with spaghetti squash, which dehydrates beautifully and brings a natural sweetness that works well with this dish.
