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…

Mommy & Me Adventures: Summer 2017

Tie Lake with our good friend, Mah-Cole, as Nolan calls her, Climbing out at Wasootch, Johnston’s Canyon, outdoor parks and more! Another summer down, and our adventures have begun to change a little. I don’t have very many friends with kids who do the things Nolan and I do, so now that he is much…

Kristina’s Adventure: Takakkaw Falls July 30 2017

Remember when I said, Valley view was preparing me for something in two weeks? Well this was it! I saw this Waterfall for my first time, less than a month before I said “that’s my climbing goal and I will climb that one day”. I saw it on our way to Revelstoke, and thought – that…

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.

Nolan plays Soccer, Starting April 2017 (May 17, 2017)

I have always dreamed that one day I would be able to coach my own kid in soccer as my Dad had coached me for basically the whole time I played soccer growing up. From the time I started, through my teens and into women’s soccer. It was definitely weird when I didn’t have him…

Mommy & Me Adventures: Chester Lake, Sept 4 16

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…

Kristina’s Adventures: Chasing Lakes May 21, 2016

The mission: To hit 5 lakes, hiking in and out of some of our destinations, starting very early in the day and ending with a sunset paddle on our last lake. Mission not accomplished! Ha-ha, BUT we did hit two out of the 5 and it ended up being a phenomenal day. We had come…
