A Romantic Dinner up Black Mountain – West Vancouver

Maelys and I were planning on hiking / camping up Wedgemount Lake this weekend but we decided that seeing as it was cloudy and raining we should maybe try one that is a little less challenging so Garibaldi Lake was the option… We ended up kind of sleeping in and decided to do Garibaldi Lake as a day hike on the Sunday… We slept in and enjoyed the time together before she went back to Belgium for a couple weeks.

In the end we decided upon a sunset dinner up Black Mountain.

Hiking up Goat Mountain, WA

This was the first venture for Sam and I into the wilderness of the US. We had done a lot of hiking over the last year on the North Shore of Vancouver and up towards Whistler so we thought we would try something new. My goodness, what a treat we were in for.

Tolkien Country – Back-country Snowshoeing The Phelix Trail – Brian Waddington Hut

– March 25th and 26th –

We had dubbed this as the last backcountry trip of this winter in the knowledge that we wouldnโ€™t be able to make it out as a group again for a while. It was made even more important for us having ballsed up the last backcountry trip (i.e. leaving it to the last minute). To prevent that happening again we had planned this 2 months in advance and so we were very much looking forward to it. Unfortunately the Dutch Waffle wasnโ€™t able to make it at the last moment but it was going to deter Sam and I from being in the presence of Mount Gandalf, Mount Aragorn and Mount Shadowfax – the land of Tolkien.
