So far, I’ve said lots (ok, a loose use of this word) about books (spines) and nothing about trails (soles). Well, as another part of my move to Vancouver Island, I want to explore the natural beauty of this place. My husband and I have a tradition of doing a three- to six-day backpacking trip each summer.
Last summer, we hiked the Skyline Trail near Jasper, AB.
The year before, we did the Rockwall trail in Kootenay National Park, BC.
Before that, we did the Iceline Trail near Takkakaw Falls and Field, AB.
This year, we want to do something on the Island, since we’re here. My fella has already done the West Coast Trail and the Juan de Fuca trail, which would have been obvious choices. So this year, we’ve set our sights on the North Coast Trail. It promises to be rugged, isolated, and challenging… are we up for the task? I’m not sure!
