Ride to Conquer Cancer Aug 18 2018

Around the beginning of 2018, my dad asked me if I would like to join him and his team for the Ride to Conquer Cancer 2018. My dad has no desire to head out to the mountains and walk. To each their own, I have tried and he says no. So when he asked if…

Kristina Meets Squamish, BC: (Aug 9-15, 2017)

Day 1 Another amazing trip of 2017 for the books, although, it did not start out that way. I wouldn’t consider throwing up the whole way, from Calgary to Squamish to be. . . amazing! It started around Field, BC, where I had to get out, and take care of . . . my barfing….

Kristina’s Adventure: Big Sister, June 18 2017

I have come to realize that mountain plans change just as fast as they are planned. Especially here in Alberta. If you’re unfamiliar with Alberta, our weather is extremely bio-polar. You can have all four seasons in the span of an hour! I am not kidding! That makes packing for adventures interesting and sometimes frustrating….

Kristina’s first outdoor climb – May 2017

It was a mid week, quick decision, after an invite came my way to go out west and meet a small group for an outdoor climb and fun in the sun! I thought, hey, why not! I can leave work at 3, get my 7.5 hours in, they cant meet till 5 anyways, so that…

May Long Weekend – May 31, 2017

Hands down, best May Long . . . EVER! I don’t think I have ever done anything May Long. Growing up – I always had to work. I never hung out with people who wanted to actually camp or do much outdoorsy stuff, and I didn’t get my license until – later than a lot…

East End of Rundle, (EEOR) April 8, 2017

  Getting out in April is hard for me as I work at an accounting firm and its personal tax time! Working all hours of the day it feels like, evenings, weekends and then some! BUT – short term pain for long term gain is what I kept telling myself. I was lucky enough to get…

Up in the Sky, Jan 14 2017

What a day! Wow, Speechless and heart racing is how I was left after this day. A few months ago, I connected with someone I used to work with. I don’t think we ever really hung out but we definitely hung out within the same group of people at a previous job. Years went by…

Happy New Year from Ha Ling! Jan 1 2017

New Years was definitely different for me this year. Initially, I was going to have Nolan and we were going to bundle up and walk around downtown to see what was going on. Get my little New Years smooch from him! I had no plans and no desires to go out partying or what not…

Where one adventure ends, another begins, Dec 31 16

2016. . . what a ride – BUT – I made it! Yes, it definitely has had its hard, bad, and sad times. Mentally, emotionally, and physically, I endured a lot and have overcome a lot of challenges. I could easily say this has been the worst year ever, but I wouldn’t have grown into the person…

Kristina’s Adventures: Mt. SparrowHawk, Sept 25 16

It was another early morning, as usual because that’s the way we like it! Typical to do’s before we hit the highway – coffee (must) and breakfast, then we are off! It was a nice early morning drive out to Canmore and up to the Spray Lakes road. I’ve never really hiked in snow before, could there…
