Vancouver Island is blessed with numerous great hiking (and Kayaking too) opportunities with great views to enjoy.
 There are lots of half and full day hikes and multiday alpine hikes to enjoy while exploring and seeing the island.

It's always Hiking Season

    Greetings My fellow wandering Mammals, it's Hiking season! Well to be truthful it is always hiking season in BC, it never really ends here. the gear just changes, because we only have two hiking styles Here in BC. the cold wet and snowy waterfall season and the warm and dry hiking and camping season. 
so I should say the Warmer and Drier Hiking season has stated, JOY!

well after a few years of healing up my Knees and dealing with the effects of twisting them at different times and on hikes.  I am back out on the trails once again and so happy to be back out pounding miles under my hiking boots. but I am still going to take it easy for now, still have pain in the knees going down hill. it should with use and abuse hopefully go away or i will damage them more, I am hoping for the first option myself!   
I have found some new to me trails on the northern east side of Mount Benson which i will be adding soon, got to relearn a few things here, its been awhile and I am got something big on the go.
so I wont working on my site until after

A kayak trip to and from Alaska.

Happy Safe Adventures My Fellow Mammals!
