And to my surprise, people have been psyched for me! Not only have they been enthusiastic with my…

Elbow Grease

Winter is slowly dwindling away and welcoming the next season in Squamish. The days of sun are coming around more frequently and the rock is starting to dry out. You can see the climbers emerge from their caves with wide eyes and hopes of a sending spring. Over the last 5 months I’ve made some…

PNW Micro Adventures: Hometown Hut Trips

This past weekend, I worked out in Garibaldi Park in the Elfin Lakes area. Luckily, I was able to bring my boyfriend, Pearce, along as a volunteer too! We spent the weekend tending to the shelter and doing a lot of digging (see the photo below – we shovelled roughly 12ft of snow). I love…

That Ranger Green

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the colour of my Ranger uniform jacket. It’s nothing special, just a washed out green colour. But each time I look down at my sleeve or catch a glimpse of the colour in a mirror or the truck window, I feel this interesting sense of peace. I look…

Dream Real – NEPAL
