Yesterday I had a wonderful day doing what I love the most – exploring nature with a friend. For the locals: We headed out to Buntzen Lake in Port Moody. We did the loop around the lake, with a detour at the north end to go around another small lake and catch a glimpse of Indian Arm.
I love hiking year-round. The benefits of fall and winter hiking include the fact that you don’t get as hot and you don’t have to fend off the bugs!
And, you get to see some cool things, like this:
We stopped at North Beach for a snack and a stretch and got to appreciate the view.
And then we continued on along the trail taking in the sites of the lake, moss covered trees, trail-side mushrooms, streams, and several waterfalls.
Make sure you are prepared though – hiking safety is important! Check out the Mountain Equipment Co-op website for some tips and tricks.
