Hiking

Walkers, hikers, and trekkers pack your boots–there’s a hike here for everyone!

We are two middle-aged, semi-fit mountain loving hikers. Though we’re not hard-core athletes, we love climbing challenging adrenaline-charged mountains, preferably ones with rewarding views at the summit. We avoid camping overnight where possible, preferring a long day’s adventure to hiking in with heavy packs full of gear.

Gordon likes to tackle mountains with as little in his pack as he can. Ginette lugs everything she thinks Gord should carry believing you should always be prepared for an emergency.

Happy trails!
Ginette & Gordon

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you
as sunshine
 flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
~ John Muir
