PNW Micro Adventures: Chapter 1

Each week I try and embark on a few micro adventures around my home base of Squamish B.C. and beyond. As I work a full time job I can’t always get away for long treks.

This is the first post in a series of adventures I will share this year. Each chapter will include a short description and photos.

*The term micro adventure was coined by British adventurer and author Alastair Humphreys and is defined as an outdoor adventure that is “small and achievable, for normal people with real lives”.

Being in the mountains is all you need; whether you run, bike, hike or ski there. Just get there.
