Elk Mountain

posted in: Fall, Outdoors | 4

This is how our Saturday looked like! After our breakfast we wanted to go and explore new places. For years, we have been driving by this place and never really got in there to see what it has to offer. I’m so glad we decided to go and do this!

The place was spectacular!!!!!

Elk Mountain is in Chilliwack B.C. – a local favourite they say. 😉 Elevation on the top is 1.4km, but the elevation gain during the hike was about 800 meters. For us It took 3h in total to go up, stroll around, take some pictures and come down. Coming down part, for me, was insane! I don’t consider myself to be too much afraid of heights, but this time it brought up every skeleton from the closet that I didn’t even know that existed! We hike a lot and I’ve done some tough hikes before but this time, the coming down part felt really bad. Perhaps I’m just getting old x) But let me tell you, this beats the gym in so many ways!

This little mountain goat has done many crazy hikes with us.. This time we didn’t have to carry her or give her a lift in any situation. We even saw smaller dogs there than ours. So this hike is very dog friendly!

The top part of the hike was very steep and slippery. This wasn’t even the worst part of going down. The camera didn’t really capture the steep hill the way it really looked and felt, to my eyes at least. Going up as hard it was, felt like a piece of cake at this point. I really had to take my time to come down! But the whole trip was so worth it!

After Party

posted in: Fall, Outdoors | 4
Next day, after my Birthday bash we wrapped some leftovers from the party and went to have a little picnic. The view was amazing, company ever better.. what more can girl ask for?! After getting out of the car, the first thing we saw was a pile of old bear droppings!!! So, everyone was on alert, watching over our shoulders every two seconds 😀 Hoping that the bear won’t smell our burgers and chocolate x) hehe .. What a perfect way to end the long weekend!

Birthday Girl

Happy Birthday to our Puppy who turns 6 years today! I can’t believe it’s been six years already! She’s never lost the puppy title since she’s still very much like one. Full of beans and lots of energy!

She’s definitely a mommy’s girl but daddy is very important too! When he’s home, we just might go for long hikes and car rides exploring new places and parks. x)

She keeps us busy and moving. Lots of fresh air and time in outdoors rain or shine, no matter what!  She’s been such a joy in our lives.

Happy Birthday!

 

 

Sunday Morning!

Good morning! Or is it a lunch time already? x) Sunday morning it is .. I have the whole day ahead of me and I’m not sure what I should do. I could do something around the house, not quite sure what x) Guess how much my upstairs project has improved since the last post about it.. (see it HERE)  not much… I haven’t done ANYTHING! Well, the picture frames are on the wall now! And to me that is a miracle instead of achievement!! 😀 But I still haven’t decided what to put in those. I did try with my wallpaper leftovers in first two. But I wasn’t convinced! Gotta keep looking… I’ve never ever felt this stuck with something x) Our garage is a mess too, It needs a serious inventory! But if I had to choose, I’ll probably go back struggling with my picture frames. Hehe…

Anyways, this weekend has been busy as well. Last night we went for a little stroll into the woods after work. We went to one of my favourite places in here. Our dog enjoyed her swimming as always.. we had coffee and cookies with us x) In overall, it was a nice way to spend Saturday night and finally start our weekend. Spending time in outdoors plays a huge role in my life. It is something what gives me energy and a peace of mind!

Alright, maybe I should get up, brush my hair, and face the world today 🙂 Who knows, maybe I get something done today!

Sunday Love!
