What a beautiful day!! This weekend some friends and I hiked up to Garibaldi Lake near Whistler, BC. It was a phenomenal hike and such a great way to spend a Sunday. The hike was 5 hrs total (about 18 km) and definitely hit my list of “most beautiful places” I have ever seen. There really is no comparison to being way up in the mountains at a gorgeous lake! The air is fresher, the trees are greener, and we were all literally squealing with happiness when we got to the top haha. If you guys can’t already tell, I like to spend my free time either skiing down mountains or climbing up them. 🙂
Hiking is a great way to stay fit, because you can do it with friends! Doing something as a group is such a good motivator to get outside. Literally on the morning we were going to do this hike I was in bed all like “uhgggg it’s cloudy, should I even go up?” But I was en-route to meet friends so I had to move my ass out of bed and get going! Group motivation, works every time. Or peer pressure… lol that works too.
Hiking is a relatively (I say relatively cuz the way down can be rough) low-impact activity which is super beneficial for those of you who have bad knees/hips like I do. And the scenery makes the trip SO worth it. I mean come on!! Would you look at that view?! Gahhhhh I can’t even you guys. Full on white-girl “can’t even.” Lol. Okay that’s enough out of me for one day.
Get outside and get moving!! Summer is here!
