#tbt to when Griffin was just a little ball of fluff, always wanting to nap, and still small enough to fit in to my backpack when hiking and snowshoeing. Now he and Phoenix run circles around me while hiking! .

"sometimes inspiration comes from a little ray of sunshine" ⛅

A little bit of sunshine yesterday was a welcome change from the pouring rain, flurries, and snowstorms we have been getting hit with these past few weeks! Looking forward to my weekend and all the adventures I have planned!

Mount Washington and most of the Strathcona Provincial Park was hit with 6+ feet of snow overnight, making roads up the mountain dangerous to travel on and triggering a lot of avalanche warnings and road closures and causing the mount Washington ski hill to be shut down. Naturally, we sought out the next best thing! We loaded up the 4x4 and headed up to the old, no longer operational, Forbidden Plateau ski hill for a quick snowshoe. When we arrived it was snowing hard but we were surprised to find a huge amount of people had the same idea! Snowboarders and skiers carving their way down the hill, snowshoers trekking through multiple feet of snow, and kids sledding. Definitely a awesome way to spend the afternoon ❄️

Please note: we spent most of our time at lower altitudes and did not attempt to climb or gain any serious altitude due to avalanche warnings. Always recommend checking the weather and alpine reports, knowing how to manage in emergency situations, and that you be prepared with appropriate gear, stay alert, and stay safe! ☺️

Snowshoeing is always made better when it's with furriends! 🐺

This little dude is 4 months old today! If you had asked me two and a half months ago, when we first laid eyes on Griffin, how I thought the experience of having a puppy in the family would be, I would have told you sleepless nights, lots and lots of training, and a total change to my day to day routine. But we have been fortunate in that Griffin has pretty much seamlessly fit in to our lifestyle. To say he has been an easier-than-normal puppy to raise is an understatement! I am so looking forward to the adventures that he, @ermagherdherpsters , @thephoenixandthegriffin and I will have in the coming year!

Beautiful day on the mountain for some boarding! 🏂

A little late but 2017 was a huge year for firsts for me: first time home owner, first time being a landlord (and, for once, not a tenant!), first time moving my entire life to a new city, first time backpacking through a different country, first time being a patient in a hospital (and not the nurse), first time being a puppy parent...even my first time snowshoeing! 2017 was full of highs and lows and has definitely made me reflect and given me a lot of inspiration moving into the new year. I have a lot of plans/goals for 2018, most of which are still in the works, but some goals, like becoming a better snowboarder, snowshoeing more, and doing more winter camping, are in the immediate future. And I can't wait! ✌️

The stark contrast between the fresh snow on the trees and the clouds made this sunrise particularity memorable ⛅

Man does time sure fly! This (not so) little guy is more than three months old now and double his size (and his personality!). He now has no problem keeping up with our adventures. He and Phoenix are also practically inseparable now. Very much looking forward to some days off this weekend up as more snow is forecasted: going to spend it in the mountains snowshoeing with Phoenix and this guy and hitting the slopes for some snowboarding 🏂

A day late but nonetheless, Merry Christmas and happy holidays from Hornby Island to friends and family near and far. It's been a year of ups and downs but I have so much to be thankful for and am once again reminded of how lucky I am to be surrounded by such inspiring people. I am really blessed. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! 🎅 🌲

Snowshoeing at sunset: with views like this, it can't get much better! While most people are starting their work week, my weekend has just begun! Looking forward to more views like this! I love where I live ✌️

Even in the winter, in the Strathcona, you can trust that the Whiskey Jacks to be in the trees just waiting to say hello! .
