Hiking is Over...

Well, Rebecca and I headed out last Saturday on our last hike. No more waking up on Saturday morning stupidly early. Okay... I recognize the value of the expierence, I was forced to get outside and that was good. I must admit, somtimes the smell of the cool morning air, mixed with the fresh smell of the woods was pretty amazing. I also realized that I don't hate hiking, I just really like slow hiking. Its no fun when you are running. This all being said, I won't be hiking for a while.

So Bec and I picked right. Buntzen Lake was the easiest hike yet. If you are more into hike-walking as opposed to just hiking, choose this one. The whole thing only took us like 2.5 hours (slowly...haha). Oh yeah...

Floating bridge...reminsicent of Qwanoes sinking into the water.
Straight out of a Dickens novel. Fog on the landscape...

Welcome to the forest...

At the end of the trip, our instructor Daryl took us all for ice cream. And not just any ice cream, but DQ. He says "get anything you want". So of course, to me this doesnt mean "go crazy", it means get a blizzard. So I did - a small. But Bec and are looking around and people are getting ENTIRE meals (girl next to window). What the heck? People are so funny. We were all feeling pretty great about this free food until we realized: it was the leftover of our student fees.
These people are EATING my fees!
...hehe. No really, it was great, randomly sitting in the DQ with my hiking class. Oh TWU....
