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….

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…

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…

Mommy & Me Adventures: Chester Lake, Sept 4 16

Early morning, as usual! My friend comes to pick us up as he has a giant truck and cannot part with it, so we switched Nolan’s seat over and headed out to highway 40! Chester Lake was recommended to me by another friend for a nice hike that should be good for me to carry…

Kristina’s Adventures: Mt. Temple – Aug 26, 16

W.O.W There’s literally, not enough words or time to describe, explain – everything I felt and saw, did this day! This was a huge day and I am so happy to be able to say – I summited Mt. Temple. I am sure to many of you – this is no big deal and you…

Mommy & Me Adventures: Ha Ling, Aug 20 16

F.M.L Yea, yea, no swearing, I should probably keep this clean, but this is my blog and I’m just trying to be real, so let’s keep it real! What was I thinking, extra 40lbs on me, going up Ha Ling. PFFF! HA!! I must be an absolute sucker for punishment and struggling. At the same time…

Kristina’s Adventures – Mt. Lady MacDonald

This adventure felt like such an accomplishment! Not only because it was the first big hike of the season for me, but I finally got my man out, who’d been saying he wanted me to take him forever but, kept pushing it off so I stopped offering. Finally one day, he says – “let’s go hiking Saturday!…
