Yant Flat and Candy Cliffs {Red Cliffs National Conservation Area}

Yant Flat and Candy Cliffs 3.0 miles / 4.8 km round trip little to no elevation gain until you are on the slickrock. Perhaps it means I am selfish, but I love having beautiful places all to myself. Places like The Wave are incredibly enticing to […]

Opal Ridge {Kananaskis Country}

Opal Ridge 8-10 km, 900 meters elevation gain If you’re like me, you love hikes which are off the beaten path and somewhat hard to find (aka no sign or map at the trailhead) because then you have a gem of a hike all to […]

Angel’s Landing {Zion National Park}

There are some places in the world that are simply worth returning to time and time again. Zion National Park is a place that you should go to more than once in your life. And I am not the kind of woman who likes to […]

Sea Stack Love — Hiking the Cliffs in the Algarve, Portugal

Sea Stack Love — Hiking the Cliffs in the Algarve, Portugal

I love it when you find yourself at home very, very far away from home. Sometimes you find yourself in a place where your heart is happy, inexplicably so … where you find yourself with an endless smile and your feet want to run everywhere, […]

Shi Shi Beach {Olympic National Park}

It is always interesting to go places that most people don’t go – there is more that is unspoiled and you aren’t tripping over scads of tourists. There is nothing quite like being pulled upstream into the flow of tourist pouring off a bus and […]

Bourgeau Lake and Harvey Pass {Banff National Park}

This year is Canada’s 150 year anniversary which means the parks are full, and I mean FULL, of tourists. I love that people are finding out about the amazing places in my backyard, but I also hate it because I am a selfish woman who […]

Cory and Edith Pass {Banff National Park}

Cory and Edith Pass {Banff National Park}

Cory and Edith Pass has been on my list for awhile; from what I could tell it would be worth the climb and then some. A few weeks ago when we were in Kananaskis, it was so hot that wearing a tank top and short […]

Tower and Delicate Arches {Arches National Park}

Tower and Delicate Arches {Arches National Park}

We arrived at Arches National Park mid-morning after running an epic race up slick rock and down the side of a mountain. Moab was a complete zoo due to about 12 events happening in town at the same time and one of them being a […]

Tent Ridge Horseshoe {Kananaskis Country}

Tent Ridge Horseshoe {Kananaskis Country}

It only makes sense to head back to the mountains to do what might be the last hiking of the season over Labour Day weekend. At some point a woman needs to adult, but apparently re-caulking my bathroom tiles and painting my vintage jeep’s hardtop […]
