Hey there! Been a bit. I’ve been busy with school, a random ArcGIS contract (yes I do that too) and a minor surgery.. It’s okay. I’m fine. I know you were incredibly concerned. I will take as many get well gifts as your wanting to give though!
Do you write? Take photos? I discovered this really neat contest that may be up your alley. Check it out!
I’ve finally done it and joined the twitter. You can find me @NomaddadMatt.
This is a poor quality photo of me at Sask Landing Provincial Park. Note the Saskatchewan: Home of the Sasquatch Tshirt
Nice day. However right after I took this I ended up running the rest of the trail as a blizzard moved in. I did have a coat. It’s behind the camera. If you turn around you can see it.
Then I went to Black Strap Provincial Park. It was a balmy -20 with the windchill this day. A little chilly. But I made it.
Then the last park I was able to hike was the trails at Echo Valley Provincial Park! I have camped here probably close to 4o times and for some reasons have never actually hiked the trails. This first shot is a view of Pasqua Lake from the top of the valley.
We enjoyed a hot lunch of spicy bacon macaroni and cheese on my Biolite Campstove. This is the first time I’ve ever used it! It’s a pretty neat debris burner. The orange part is a fan that pushes air to the fire. It also has a USB charger that you can charge devices with. However I think it takes a long long time to change
I’ll end with a panorama of Pasqua and Echo Lakes with the bridge in between.
Here is a link to the Biolite stuff on Amazon. They have a lot of different stuff you can do with it. I’d recommend it for day hikes as you don’t need to carry fuel with you.
