Tea for Two: Hiking the Teapot Hill Trail near Cultus Lake

The last time I was driving through the Chilliwack area, I touched base with my hiking buddy Lauren. Since I was just passing through on my way to an isolated cabin for my personal retreat, I asked if there was a shorter hike that we could do nearby. We settled on Teapot Hill.

Chuckanut Mountain Day Hikes for Your Next Visit to Bellingham

I recently did a quickie day trip across the border to pick up a package and do a little Christmas shopping. I decided to take the opportunity to look up some short hikes that weren't too far out of our way that we could fit in as my morning exercise.

Enjoying the Cold Shoulder: Tips for Hiking the Fall-Winter Shoulder Season

If you're into both hiking and snowshoeing in the Vancouver area, you are, like me, probably feeling a little frustrated right now. The weather has been unseasonably dry. While this doesn't sound terrible, I mean who doesn't like a bit of a break from the incessant rains...

Wilderness Survival Course Review: Testing Skills that Go Beyond the Outdoors

Flat-Up-Down-Flat: The Hike to Coliseum Mountain

I knew we were going to have sunny, warm weather yesterday. I had hoped to get out with a friend on an overnighter, but she ended up having to work. Failing to find someone who could go backpacking Sunday-Monday, I decided to do the next best thing; an epically long hike done entirely in one day.

Rain, Snow, Sleet & Sun Hiking the Skyline 2 Trail to Mowich Camp

Early fall is one of the best times to go backpacking in BC. The bugs are gone. The weather has cooled off. You might even get some fall colours depending on where you go. I try to get out backpacking as often as I can this time of year.

The Way the Wind Blows: Anniversary Car Camping in Osoyoos

For many years I have wanted to visit Osoyoos and camp at Haynes' Point Provincial Park, located on a thin spit of land that juts out into the lake. The sites always looked so idyllic, especially those next to the water. Plus, I had always wanted to see Spotted Lake in person...
