Yes as weird and wonderful as that might sound, I decided to grab sushi for lunch on my way through Harrison Hot Springs, then head up Harrison East FSR to find some snow!
Despite all of the bumps along the way, I only had a slight Miso soup spill and everything else made it in one piece!
I found a little pullout and stopped to enjoy my sushi feast! The rain turned to snow and I turned off my radio to enjoy the peaceful sound of snow falling as I enjoyed my sushi feast.
I only went a few kilometres down the road before the visibility became poor and the truck in front me was fishtailing around every corner.
I hit a slippery patch and decided since it was already mid afternoon, that I should probably not head any deeper into the snow, after realizing I forgot to put my usual snow wheeling weight in the back of the truck!
There is so much gorgeous scenery along the way up Harrison East FSR, but I knew the forecast was for lots of snow at higher elevations. I decided not to push my luck this time, but did enjoy the snow falling and some quiet solo time!
I can’t be the only Mom who sometimes just wants to get out alone so I’m not responsible for anybody or anything other than myself… I didn’t even bring my dog this time.
Self care comes in all forms, mine is frequently driving up a mountain and enjoying some quiet time in nature.
What do you do for self care?
As always, remember if solo adventuring to always let someone know where you will be and when to expect you back. Plan ahead and go prepared! When it is snowing, that means bringing a dry change of clothes, extra layers like mittens and toques and blankets.
