we decided that it would be a good idea to go on a family hike once a week this summer. taking the advice of a seasoned hiker i met on a previous hike we established that heather trail at manning park would be a safe bet with aya along. it seemed like a good idea at the time and then i spent a solid 5 minutes of the car ride there projectile vomiting until all the blood vessels around my eyes sockets exploded. i immediatly decided it would be the last hike of the summer and then back to bed rest and netflix. thank you pregnancy. and thank you jamie for being so kind as to pack aya, my camera equipment and all of the food and water. regardless of my first trimester blues it is very beautiful and i would highly recommend it as far as bc hiking goes. the best time to go is in early summer when all of the wildflowers are out (around july). this trail is known for all of its beautiful flowers and colours, we went up in august during the tail end when not as many were in bloom. next year i plan on checking it out a little earlier when there are more flowers out and who knows, maybe we’ll even find ourselves out for a family hike once a week!
jamie was talking to aya all about being a big sister (there’s been a lot of talk of it around here lately) i caught her on my camera as she looked over at me for a second, clearly she’s very excited! ^^^
