Nate took his friend Ewan, from Vancouver, on his first Chilliwack River Valley hike (and only the fourth hike of his life) last Saturday. Nate: "Lovely Lady Lindeman was adorned in her brightest hues. Looks like summer, but it definitely wasn't! Snow was blowing sideways at one point, but it was worth every shiver. And there's something about a hike that always brings out a meaningful mix of shared silence and deep conversation." A reflection from Ewan on becoming a hiker: ""Hiking was for the die-hards, I thought. Those with the gear and the granola heart. Trudging up a dirty obstacle path for hours, only to return with a nice view and sore knees? No thanks. But when visiting a good friend, she pulled me outside my comfort zone and onto her favourite trail. It was in those subsequent hours I realized, for me, hiking is all about the intangibles. Absorbed by nature, free of distractions, a gift of space and time to breathe new thoughts. It's now my quiet escape of peace and reflection in our noisy world. But I'm still not eating granola!" Ewan's "hiking dance". Looking good! Anyone else out there got dance moves on the trail?
Sometimes you need to pack up the trailer, get off the grid and soak in lots of nature...that is exactly what we did this week and it. was. glorious. 🙌🏼😎✌🏼 Feeling very blessed for the time freedom that allows my hubby & I to give our babies this beautiful life we work so hard for 💫
Friends, what is YOUR favorite way to refresh & rejuvenate?!
I got to go to Mexico with some guys I play with and we had the most amazing time playing and getting treated like kings by the community of our parent club that celebrated 100 years this year. An amazing trip. This photo was taken after a 3 hour atv ride through the mountain countryside.
