One last highlight from my 2017 hikes for you all.
This photo was taken while hiking the Mt Nimbus Via Ferrata in BC. Via Ferrata is simply a hike where you clip into cables along the route, essentially making more difficulty hikes like this one safer and more approachable. To access this hike you need to book a helicopter trip with CMH Heli tours. Definitely a bucket list spot for me.
Next up on my list of favorite hikes from this year was Tunnel Bluffs above Howe Sound. The trailhead is only 40 minutes from Vancouver, but it feels like you're a long way from anything. I recommend camping in the spring or later into the fall and midweek if you can, to avoid crowds.
As always, please respect these beautiful places and pack out what you pack in.
For the last few days before New Years I want to share with you a few of my favorite hikes from 2017. So if you're making plans for next year around Canada you should add them to your list.
The first is East End of Rundle right outside of Canmore. A shorter day hike, this scramble offers some pretty unique views of Ha Ling peak and 360 degree views of the peaks and valleys below. Bring a friend or two and a headlamp and stay until sunset. You won't regret seeing last light from the top.
Leaving the craziness of the city and finding quiet places is pretty key to my sanity. This time of year it’s important to have the right gear to protect from the elements as well. I’ve appreciated the Simcoe Parka from Woods for those cold city nights or when I’m out in nature. Check the link in my bio to see more about Woods clothing @sportchek #WoodsExplorer #MyBetter #ad
Standing in front of a thundering waterfall is one of my favourite experiences. The importance of quality outerwear, like this Woods parka from @sportchek, becomes pretty clear the longer you stand there too. Kept me crazy warm and totally dry.

Hard to comprehend the size of this waterfall. Tim got completely drenched from head to toe standing there to get the photo. Being a bit of a perfectionist, I didn’t get the exact shot I wanted the first time and he went back and got soaked a second time. Now that’s a true friend. It’s a good thing he loves waterfalls.
