On my last day in Vancouver I hopped over to Stanley Park for a hike around. I decided to walk the perimeter of the park on the seawall which is about 9 kilometers in total. I got lucky with the weather again and had a lovely walk around the park. My walk also coincided with the annual JDRF Telus Walk to Cure Diabetes.

On this trip I was hiking with the Island Mountain Ramblers and we were a diverse crowd of about 10 hikers, many of whom had never visited this beach before. The weather was kind to us for the weekend [...]
- Cape Scott Hiking Trip — We drove to the northern tip of Vancouver Island to explore the legendary Cape Scott trail. I had done this hike before but it was a first for Brittany. The hike to Nels Bight at Cape Scott is 17 kilometres through the forest which is extremely mucky in parts, past lakes, rivers, former settlements and [...]
