My most favourite part of hiking - the ups! After all the agony of the climb, getting to the top and knowing that I conquered the hill is exhilarating! I love it.
Considering most of my hiking so far and for the
foreseeable future, will be in the mountains and foothills, it's a good thing that I have found something about up that I enjoy!
This weekend we visited family in Golden, BC in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. On Saturday we packed up and drove for about half an hour (or less) to Cedar Lake which houses the Moonraker Trail System! We spent a fun couple of hours traipsing through the bush and conquering lots of up. There was even a rope to swing on but no one was brave enough to let go and swim in the lake. Likely the best choice considering the falling snow - the dog enjoyed the water, though.
There are over 50km of trails in the Moonraker System.
