Confessions of a Lazy Person : Back To School

School’s back and that means I’m back. Back to running, weekly schedules, getting organized, working hard and deeply breathing. The first week was a big transition for everyone. In the summer we were used to waking up whenever we felt like it, having fun outside all day and staying up late.

And we love summer.

I also love school time. It’s nice to mix it up a bit, like having seasons. And even though the kids are in school, we are still finding time to go for little hikes or bike rides in the evenings. Life is still good and fun! We’re just a little more scheduled.

Short But Sweet Hike In Fernie

Fairy Creek Falls - Fernie, BC - easy short hike

It’s been a while since I’ve walked to Fairy Creek Falls and when some friends visit from Vancouver and you only have 2 hours of free time, it’s a great choice with great rewards.

A Mini Hike Around Lake Trail At Island Lake Lodge

Island Lake Lodge - Lake Trail with children - beautiful stops

I couldn’t put my phone down at Island Lake Lodge on Sunday. It is just too beautiful and every time we turned a corner there was a new amazing site to see. We thought Lake Trail would be the perfect place to introduce hiking to our 3 and 2 year old and we were right…it was just enough hike for them. At the end, Rod biked down the new and hyped Lazy Lizard and we collected him at the bottom. In a couple years, maybe even next summer, we’ll take them on the Old Growth Trail and finish up with lunch on the Island Lake outdoor patio.

Starting from the Harley Lake entrance (vs Island Lake) of Heiko’s Trail (a.k.a. Mountain Lakes Trail) we began our trek into the wilderness with the Bisaro Cave as our desired destination. Bisaro Cave is so hot this year. Everyone seems to be going. The hike is easy until you reach Jumping Waters waterfalls and then it’s mostly uphill with the use of many handy ladders and steps. When wet, the ladders, steps and mud can be very slippery and there’s not much stopping you from falling straight down (this is what I was thinking when I was hiking)…so caution is needed, or a friendly helping hand. Our destination did not disappoint. I tried to capture the size and chill of the cave via photograph, but I fear they don’t fully translate. You’ll just have to experience it yourself.
