The Ultimate Sidekick

It’s National Dog Day, and I have a million, gazillion photos of my pup, Miss Belle, who is my constant companion on all my hiking and camping adventures.  She is so well trained for photos, I just have to call her name and she will pose for me, lol. She is a Golden Lab/Great Pyrenees …

Camouflage

While out for a hike with my lovely photographer friend, we had gone across the train tracks and were scrambling down to the river, when we saw a man, alone, working at gutting some fish (we think?). He was by some Pondarosas close to shore, and I remember we were a little leary, as, all …

Happy Trails

Roland and I suited up and went out for a hike today, only to have it cut short.  The culprit: Coyote.  It seemed rather apt that it would be cut short by wildlife, as it is Wildlife Week right now.  Now, Miss Belle and I have been surrounded by a pack of coyotes twice before, …

Wildlife Week

It’s Wildlife Week!! Take the time to play outdoors, hike in the forest, feed the birds & marvel in the world around you.

It was to awesome to finally head outdoors for even a small hike.  The clouds rolled in last night and the sound of rain on my roof made me so happy. I love September; the change in weather,  apple pies galore and that cozy feel of fall. But it’s not just that, this was my …

Vancouver Island

We snuck out to Cowichan Bay and Juan de Fuca Provincial Park on Vancouver Island for a couple days and enjoyed some quiet, beautiful, sunny days on the beach/hiking/boating. I seriously can’t believe how great the weather was for us, as the last two times we went to the Island it was nothing but rain and fog, …

Squamish Love

Squamish Love

I headed out to Squamish, BC a while back for the Canadian Internet Marketing Conference.  I was really looking forward to this event since I am trying to learn more about marketing for my art business, but also for my day job, were I run all the social media. Another reason I was so excited …

Mara Trail in April

Mara Trail in April

Mara trail is such a great hike to start the season, as its the perfect amount of exercise, and full of views of the short lived green spring of Kamloops.   The land is rented out for cattle, and there were so many on the trail.  They are always such skiddish, amusing creatures though, lol. …
