Even though the weather is changing, and pretty fast I might add, I’m a huge fan of camping and hiking all year round. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing choices and lack of preparation. Okay, okay, I know that might be easy to say… until you’re attempting to hike in the middle of a freakin’ snow storm. But, embracing adventures in the outdoors all year long is totally worth it – I promise!
Women in the Outdoors
Winter in Canada isn’t always the most forgiving experience, to say the least. It can be cold, feel somewhat unrelenting and abundantly unpredictable. But over the years, I’ve worked hard on complaining less about it and rather started focusing on making the most out of it instead. Easier said than done for the most part, right? Well ultimately, the key is to be as prepared as you possibly can be, while remembering to always have fun – no matter what it throws at you. It’s that simple.
Growing up, I mostly lived in the city. But, I was frequently exposed to nature and had the opportunity to explore the great outdoors on a fairly regular basis. Whether it was camping or cabins with family, staying on friends properties out in the country, or even dedicated adventures – I always knew that I loved it. And now, it has brought me to a point in my life where connecting with it helps me to thrive, while pushing myself out of my comfort zone and learning about how truly resilient I am. Combine all of that with a whole heck of a lot of memories and fun along the way, and I’m absolutely hooked for life.
