Here are a few shots from the last week in British Columbia. I beat my time on the Grouse Grind to bring my Pb to 34.02. I climbed Goat mountain and ran trails all around the Grouse mountain area. This left me a little beaten the day after especially as my ankle was acting up. Holidays being holidays I didn’t feel there was time to waste and the rest of the week was very active. We hiked and ran trails on Saltspring Island, kayaked off the Island and fitted in some early morning runs just in case things weren’t active enough. Yes, most of you will say it is relaxing I should try and accomplish while on holidays but for me this is relaxation and it clears the mind in a better way. There was of course some really good food and beers thrown in the mix. After all I am on holidays ! A massive thanks to my friends here for making the trip an amazing one. 

Oh and I threw in a bit of fishing too!

Grouse grind, Dam and Little Goat

Another fun day running and hiking today. I completed the famous Grouse Grind climb, over 2800 steps. I am told my time of 35.52 minutes was very respectable! I carried on hiking to Dam Mountain and Little Goat Mountain before dragging my weary legs home. It was considerably hotter today as well so I am feeling it this evening. The views were amazing throughout and even though the recent forest fires have left a smoky sky, I really enjoyed the wilderness of British Columbia once more.  

    

  

 

I also met this guy, however he is in an enclosure. I don’t like to see animals in  pens but I heard these guys were rescued while injured so I felt better then.
