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...

The Way the Wind Blows: Anniversary Car Camping in Osoyoos
