The Beauty in Wet

Filed under: Canada — K2 in Canada @ 7:09 AM

Trying to catch up on my blogging. Saturday July 9th was a somewhat wet day – a normal summer day in the temperate rainforest region of coastal BC :-). We didn’t really have any plans for the weekend so Jeff decided to roller ski up Cypress. I went with him to drive the car up and meet him at the top.

While waiting I hiked up Black Mountain. This was the day of the Knee Nacker Race – a 50km cross country running race up and down the North Shore mountains along the Baden Powell trail. Something I would never consider doing but I know a few people that did. Some of them have done it 10 times! Hats up to all the people who can do this! By the time I made it up to Cypress Bowl all the runners had gone past it already. It was a misty day. Not really raining, until the very end. I love our local forests when it is wet. No words needed…

I actually did jog most of the way down – was a bit late and didn’t want Jeff to have to wait too long. And it really started raining near the end.

But it wasn’t all wet that day. We did a nice evening paddle on the river by our house later on.
