A hike up to Island Lake Lodge, especially now that the weather has been summerized, to enjoy their new lunch menu on the best outdoor patio in Fernie is just what my psyche ordered. Marie Kristine and I took three dogs UP (seriously) the Cedar Valley Rail Trail and Old Growth Trail in just under 2 hours. It was a success! The dogs are all passed out and I feel like I did something today. Best Thursday evah.
