I took my fur baby Zola for a drive down Chilliwack Lake Road to Bench FSR this afternoon. Definitely a different vibe on a long weekend- people pulling U-turns on the main road over a double solid yellow line in a 80km/h zone, trailers parked ON the FSR, not even in a pullout or onContinue reading “Solo Saturday”
I had a few hours of downtime between my on campus classes and was all caught up on my homework (for once), so I opened Google Maps and looked for a trail close by! To my surprise, I discovered one right behind my college campus! Hoy Creek Linear Park is a network of trails thatContinue reading “Hoy Creek Linear Park – A Little Piece of Paradise in Coquitlam, BC”
Riverside Recreation Site is tucked off to the side of Chilliwack Lake Road. It backs onto the Chilliwack River and other than the occasional road noise, is a beautiful serene place! This spot would be great for group camping as well, as it is quite open.
If you come explore the Beautiful Chilliwack River Valley, be sure to add this site to your list of camping spots!
Sometimes adventures don’t have to be planned, or very long. This unplanned Sunday drive brought me to Gill road in Chilliwack and was just the reset I needed. So many beautiful views!
Bench FSR is one of my favourite drives, but in the Fall with the leaves changing colours it is even more beautiful.
I love the views along this drive and honestly come up here whenever I can.
Located in the Beautiful Chilliwack River Valley, off of Chilliwack Lake road, is a gorgeous Recreation Site located on the banks of the river. Fall asleep listening to the sounds of the river, the calls of birds and the wind rustling the trees.
Popular for dirt bikers and quads on the weekends, you can ride right out from the campground, making it convenient but also less peaceful.
Group Camping at Weaver Lake Rec Site was an amazing time! Solo drive up was so much fun, 4×4 definitely recommended.
This year was a little different, both because of Covid and because I am 2 weeks post op from knee surgery! I am healing well and have good range of motion, but am still pretty sore and need to take it easy. Certain things (like putting on socks) are still a challenge and have helpedContinue reading “Mother’s Day Adventure 2021”
McDonald Dark Sky Preserve is a beautiful spot to go for a walk or run. The dyke goes in both directions and you can walk for quite a ways.
This park is also used by astronomers and sometimes hosts special events when there are meteor showers predicted.
Overall it is a really nice park with a small play area, picnic tables, and flush toilets!
