day 1494 – eagles bluffing

speeding through eagle bluffs and shaving an hour off the average hiker time – not bad for the first hike of this summer. the first twenty minutes was the hardest, but having gotten past that is a chance to stand on this rock to look out from a vantage point. it’s good to get out to keep our annual outdoor adventure alive. the hike was good, the view was great, the legs are satisfyingly tired but still feeling unjustified. the damage of what’s said can’t be undone. it’s not the first time upsetting things have been said, but every time the disappointment hurts just as much

hiking adventure – quarry rock

wouldn’t have been a fulfilling long weekend if i didn’t get to go out and enjoy the sunshine we’ve been blessed with. got the first hike of this summer out of the way. it’s a fairly short hike and rated one of the easier trails of vancouver so it’s definitely a good place to start. the roundtrip there and back was completed in under one and a half hour, in addition to the time spent taking photos and enjoying the scenery. the view at the peak is beautiful overlooking north vancouver. kayaked at this location a number of times but never have i gotten the view of deep cove from up top. hoping i would be able to go on a longer one with even greater rewards. good thing its just the beginning of august and there’s a whole month left before summer season starts to wrap up

day 734 – quarry rock

had bigger hikes in mind for this august long weekend, but my ankle didn’t give me a chance. probably shouldn’t have done this strenuous activity to begin with but forced it to happen and still in one piece all thanks to the tape job that held my ankle together. would have been devastated if i couldn’t at least go on a hike this long weekend, even if it meant quarry rock. it was a good hike nonetheless and the view up top was so relaxing at the same time rewarding. hoping i can do the hike i wanted to before summer’s end
