Beautiful BC with my best friend 🙂

Sharing some love for the beautiful country of Canada which is celebrating it’s 150th birthday today!  Just finished having a lovely evening with the family (we had fish n’ chips at Pajo’s in the park and checked out some of the Canada Day festivities going on there).  We went for a loooong walk with Moka in the nice evening weather as well.  I think we’ll probably start hearing fireworks soon as it’s getting dark out…and we can kind of watch them from the comfort of home with a nice glass of wine and not in the crowded park haha.  The perfect way to spend my last evening at home for a while.  Here’s some photos of one of the many majestic places in British Columbia which make be so grateful to call this place home.  Joffre Lakes is about half hour north of Whistler (so 3 hours north of Vancouver) and is a pretty low key hike.  It took us about two hours to get to the final of the three lakes, and less than that walking down.  Totally doable in a day, but me and my best friend Shannon wanted to camp out over night at the top lake beneath the glacier.  So epic.  We did in September this past year and the weather was overcast the first day meaning the trails and camping sites were pretty empty for us!  This is a pretty popular hike now and on sunny weekends there’s lots of people.  Recommend doing it on weekdays in the summer or later on in September!  Also highly recommend camping.  You drop your overnight fee (I forget what it is, very cheap though…maybe ten dollars a person?) in a mail box at the trail head and you’re set.  Hiking up with gear between a couple people is very easy as well, like I said the hike is more on the mellow side in my opinion (online it says the round trip is 10km).  Waking up to the sun peeking over a clear blue lake and snowy mountains is so amazing.  The perfect place for a coffee and contemplation.  Hopefully me and Shannon get to do another sick hike this summer or early fall!  Time flies when you’re both busy with work and travel though.  I’m flying to Idaho tomorrow just in time to celebrate the USA’s birthday, as well haha.  So excited to see Essex, I miss him!  All packed and ready for an early morning flight.  Talk to you on my layover in Seattle I think.  Have an awesome Canada Day babeskillets, Tita xx
