Camping in “Jerry the Parrot” May 2019

We had been talking about it for a while, how exciting it would be to camp in the jeep together. After all, we are both pretty small and its a perfect space for us to do so. So one week, while at work, I just decided to bite the bullet. I went to my dad’s…

Mommy & Me Adventures: Sentinel Pass Aug.6.18

Two years after our first attempt, when he was much lighter, we did it! The first time we tried this, I made it through the Valley and up to the base of the switch backs to get up to Sentinel Pass. It was October 2016 and as soon as I started going up on those…

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….

Nolan’s Adventure: Ptarmigan Cirque, June 24, 2017

  It’s open for the season and we’re at it again! Ptarmigan Cirque has been good to Nolan and I, it’s definitely a special spot for us. Our most recent adventure there was another one I just have to share! I am so proud of my boy! ❤ The day started out with his wind…

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….

Mommy & Me Adventures: Rawson Lake June 11, 2017

Another weekend with my boy, another adventure to get going on! Originally we had planned to go to Ptarmigan Cirque, but the highway was not opened yet. Thankfully, because I didn’t check before we left – oops, the person we were going with suggested Rawson Lake. The turn off was right there and they knew the…

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…

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…
