The Great Trans Canada Road Trip – Home

After 6 months on the road, I arrived home nearly two weeks ago [my stationary home here in the Kootenays as opposed to my movable home 🙂 ]. For the most part it was an incredible and wonderful journey of exploration, with over 21000 kilometers driven, and quite a few kilometers hiked. Vehicle problems made … Continue reading The Great Trans Canada Road Trip – Home

The Great Trans Canada Road Trip – weeks three and four

At Wawa, I decided to leave behind Lake Superior and explore inland. I didn't get too far before I stopped to check out Potholes Provincial Park. The access road was partly flooded, but manageable. It's just a small day-use area and trailhead, but it was a nice forested spot and out of sight of the … Continue reading The Great Trans Canada Road Trip – weeks three and four

The Great Trans Canada Road Trip – week two

Leaving the Cypress Hills area, I ventured further into Saskatchewan, stopping to wander through the original prairie and badlands of Grasslands National Park. From there I continued east into the Big Muddy badlands, then northward past the mostly still frozen lakes and snowy environs of Moose Mountain. Crossing into Manitoba, I ventured still further north … Continue reading The Great Trans Canada Road Trip – week two

The Great Trans Canada Road Trip – week one

After driving nearly 5000 km (4940 to be exact) in a not particularly straight line, I'm currently taking a long break at my brother's place in Ontario. With a few exceptions it's been a fairly awesome trip so far. I'm working on editing the way too many pictures I've taken - here's a look at … Continue reading The Great Trans Canada Road Trip – week one

This first part is of my more local trips in the Kootenay and Boundary regions. Part two, covering my two trips into the Rockies, is coming soon. … Continue reading the road to nowhere: 2021 edition – part one: local trips

Rolling with the punches and keeping it local

I've learned a great many things from my years of long hikes and cycle tours, but perhaps one of the most important is to roll with the punches. You can make all the plans you want, but if you aren't able to adapt to what the environment, other people, and your own body throw at … Continue reading Rolling with the punches and keeping it local

Photo Album: Winter hikes on Southern Vancouver Island

Mid-January I went camping out at my favorite spot by Jordan River. I only stayed one night though. A campfire kept me warm during the long evening, but it was pretty chilly in the morning. The rest of January I stuck to day hikes closer to home.   February brought snow to Victoria and I … Continue reading Photo Album: Winter hikes on Southern Vancouver Island
