Willow Valley – Fall 2015

Went for hunting again this year and finally ended the three year skunk but that aside here’s what willow valley looked like in the fall of 2015.

Also, a little video taken with the new “live” photos in iOS 9…sorry it’s vertical (vertical videos looks stupid on most TVs) but it seemed like a good idea when I was taking the picture.

Hiking the Inkpots in Winter

Friend of mine invited me to do some hiking with him, in theory it was going to be a beautiful day and we’d both bring our dogs. Nice and easy 4km (round trip) hike on a sunny day, sounds great!!!

Then Murphy’s law kicks in, Buddy (my dog) was being an idiot, he wanted to scrap with the other dog all the time, was barking at everything and generally being a grade-a a-hole. The 11km (round trip) trail was mostly frozen and I didn’t have any icers on so the number of times I fell on my face on the way up was only surpassed by the number of times I fell on my ass on the way back down.

None the less…

It was worth it!!! Again, it was a beautiful day and seeing the Inkpots made it worthwhile. I actually wore Buddy (he slept in the back of the truck all the way home) out and utterly crushed my (Nike) fuel points for the day.
