That looks like quite a hike. I bet it was a great day. I did quite a bit of hiking in Palm Springs and lived it. The most I did was 84 flightsÖ

I joined a MeetUp group - Slow and Steady Hikers. We are not young, but we are able to hike.
Today we hiked the Skaha Bluffs, just south of Penticton. They limit how many can go. At first I was on a wait list, but then there was an opening. 124 flights of stairs, according to my Fitbit. I will pay tonight with leg cramps.



Thankfully it was a cool, refreshing day. My daily walking is paying off.

My daughter is in Prince Rupert. These are her photos from yesterday.



Itís hard to capture the whales from the shore. I envy her this viewing experience.

I went for a walk to an abandoned old building and took some interesting photos. I thought I might share them here.

I wonder how old that shoe is?

Hi, I haven't done much walking these past few years due to mobility issues and pain. I'm hoping this year will be a change! My favourite places to explore are Smithers region, Mt Robson area and Terrace region. I haven't spent much time in the Kootenays, its' on my list. I love exploring in Powell River - they have amazing hiking. Cranberry Mountain is average hike, as I could do it even with the weight and the view is amazing at the top. The hike through the forest on the beach area is absolutely magical. My cousin and his wife live in Smithers and I love exploring the region with them. Mt Robson, such a gorgeous mountain but I'm not fit enough to climb, however, I did camp there for a few days. I went on short day hikes, explored, it's such an amazing region being an inland rainforest. If you ever travel between Prince George and McBride, stop in at the Ancient Forest. It's a boardwalk through the inland rainforest, which is set up for wheelchairs. I wasn't able to climb to the falls, but I was fine sitting at the bottom of the incline while my friend and niece went - due to a poor rainfall summer season, the falls were dry. My niece was disappointed but proud they made it to the top. (she was 10 at the time)

I take a different route everyday! An hour walk can take me far and wide! There is always something new to see. I love other peopleís gardens. I donít have a green thumb. It is also not safe to have a predictable routine. I miss walking with my dogs, but I am enjoying my freedom.



Todayís find, a beautiful dogwood.

Here in Granisle I walk the dogs up the road to the dump. It is along Lake Babine. The Bear Island campsite is great for a walk part way around the lake. Then there is the other direction which brings us to the Fulton River fisheries. They got real picky about dogs not being loose there but the roads around the channels are great for a good walk. There is also the road before the fisheries which is my current favorite as there is little traffic and the dogs can run. My not favorite lately was a road about 40 km. from Granisle toward Topley. There is a road supposedly leading to a falls and there is no traffic but our dog got waylaid there and we just got lucky that somehow she managed to hitchhike home to Granisle. Picture a little white ball of fluff with her paw out hitching a ride home and getting it. No bad people on that road!

What are affectionately known as the Swamp Run & the Hospital Run are my faves :) Around the swamp tends to lose its appeal once the bugs come out though :)

Anywhere in the 100 Mile House area is fantastic for a walk run or bike!

I started this forum thread to hear about your favorite places to be outside and active in BC. Post the places and what you do there. You can even put a link to it on google maps!

Here's mine:
I love the 108 Like Trail! I love to bike and Run around it. Its about 12 Km around if you include the little lake beside it. Other people horse back ride and cross country ski in the winter too!
