Backcountry, Bears and bugs

The past week has been eventful. We have hiked mountains, ran down mountains, jumped over bear scat, and seen some amazing views. Everywhere you look in British Columbia there is a view to remember.   The trip to Canada has been fantastic so far. Apart from a little change in what I eat and drink which effects training I have enjoyed fitting my runs in around holidays. It is of course so important to let the hair  down and enjoy holidays, having some beer, etc. I am lucky that my favourite hobbies fit nicely into most holidays as well. We hiked a few peaks in Garibaldi provincial park, near whistler over the past few days and before that Cypress mountain near Vancouver. Here is a little idea of the terrain. 

  
This is a typical British Columbia trail. The next trip was some camping near Whistler and this took us up to lakes and mountains in Garibaldi area. 

   

 Not a bad view at all! 

I found a Salomon shop on my travels too, time to maybe retire the old ones!  

 
These guys are very popular on the trail, not for the squeamish if you step on one ! 

  
So 9 days left of this epic trip. I hope I have some nice posts and photos before the end.
