There’s little more that makes me as happy as hiking does; give me some good pals, beautiful weather, scenic views and a camera, and you can be certain I’ll be in good spirits (obnoxiously singing to vocalize my joy, no doubt). This past weekend Zach and I decided to do just that, and headed for Hamilton to see some of his best pals, Nick, Jesse and Emma (but she was away), their ridiculously adorable daughter Dorothy. I don’t visit Hamilton much, but I think it’s well worth the trip every so often – aside from the lovely people who reside there – just for the views. Dundas Peak is stunning year round, but particularly so in Autumn with it’s colourful, changing leaves. We didn’t make it all the way to the peak, but what we did see was enough to leave me satisfied (that’s what she said).

Belle Vie / 19: Bruce Peninsula National Park

DSC_0001DSC_0007DSC_0011DSC_0017DSC_0027DSC_0032DSC_0038DSC_0042DSC_0046DSC_0053DSC_0064DSC_0067DSC_0070DSC_00721. As I mentioned, I went camping in Bruce Peninsula National Park last week. We stopped at Canadian Tire on the way up to grab some things and saw this sweet van. Old Yeller!
2. We brought an abundance of grapefruits to make juice and tasty bourbon drinks. We camp classy.
3. We might have finished this entire bottle of bourbon over the week…
4. Put up a hammock but something was weird about it. You’d sit in it and it would just sink on one side. We are not good at hammocks, apparently.
5. Thank god we brought an axe and hatchet with us to make kindling. Last time I went camping we forgot that, and it was a pain in the ass, let me tell you.
6. Ryan makes a good fire.
7. Ummm, ya Ryan brought a lot of cardboard shit to burn…including two Pizza Pizza boxes…
8. Receipts as well? Don’t ask, Ryan is weird.
9. But a good fire, none the less.
10. Proof that I can smile.
11. Ryan wanted to see if he could jump over our tent. I knew this would go down in one of two ways. One, he would make it over easily. Two, he would crush our tent right after we put it up. He made it over and was like really, really pleased with himself.
12. Lying in the hammock, looking up at the trees.
13. The road driving up to the park. There is something so calming about an open, quiet road. A rarity when you live in the city.
14. We stopped by the store on the second day to pick up some more ice for our cooler. This place had showers because there are none in the campgrounds. We didn’t shower, which I never do when I’m camping. teehee!

*I’ve got so much more to share with you. These were only from the first day and the next morning.
