I have found that some of the simplest things have given me the most pleasure. They didn’t cost me a lot of money either. They just worked on my senses. Did you ever pick very large blueberries after a summer rain Walk through a grove of cottonwoods, open like a park, and see the blue sky beyond the shimmering gold of the leaves? Pull on dry woolen socks after you’ve peeled off the wet ones? Come in out of the subzero and shiver yourself warm in front of a wood fire? The world is full of such things.

more hiking photos:
I. that bridge was only discovered once I had taken off my shoes and crossed the river twice. WELP.
II. mmm, cedar.
IV. an eerie punctuation to the end of my journey.
I. my unofficial entrance to the park (which I now know is called the Hunter-Russell Nature Trail).
II. campfire remnants; they were kind enough to leave a pile of kindling and a small fire extinguisher nearby for the next person.
III. wild spearmint growing beside the creek!
IV. Willow Creek.
one of my favourite hobbies while hiking is discovering seemingly random rivers and then researching about them later to figure out where they connect to the rest of the world.
That being said, I pretty much bushwhacked my way through a nearby provincial park today without knowing it was a provincial park until the near end of my journey. This means a whole lotta hiking photo spam is coming up shortly.
