Welcoming Spring on the Bruce Trail

The Bruce Trail is an 885 kilometer trail in Ontario that extends from Niagara Falls to Tobermory on the Bruce Peninsula. The Bruce Trail is the longest hiking trail in Ontario. It was the last day of March. There were still pockets of snow, but most of the Ontario snow had melted away. I headed out after work to hike a segment of the Bruce T [...]

But even more than that, I think the honesty of that post is what resonated with people. I messed up. And I owned it. I’m a backpacking instructor and a Leave no Trace Trainer.

Leaving Kalalau

For me, hiking isn’t about the destination, it’s about the journey. It’s about time on the trail. Even after long and strenuous days of hiking, I quickly find myself wanting to get back to it.
