I have been making an effort to get outside more, visit new places, meet new people and try new things. It sounds easy, but it really takes a conscious effort. It is a lot easier to stay in your same routine where you are comfortable.
I live in an area where there is no shortage of things to do outside…so there is no excuse! Hiking is a great way to check a few things off the list above.
For this hiking adventure (check), I went on a hike with a new friend (check, check), to a place that was so crazy close to my home I can’t believe I had never been there before (check, check, check). See how easy that was to do!
This is Steelhead Falls which is located near the Hayward Reservoir Trail in Mission, BC.
Don’t you love this backpack!?! It is such a great colour and I adore it. 🙂 It is a High Sierra Karadon backpack. It is available in a range of sizes from 5L to 65L making it perfect for short hiking adventures like this or even a week long camping excursion.
All High Sierra Karadon packs have removable and washable straps, hip belt and lumbar padding – which is a good thing! Additionally, you can remove the suspension panel, which will increase the capacity of the pack when needed.

A special thanks to Zack Melhus for getting me out of the house and for taking these killer photos! ? This was our first outing together and as you can see below, my mom was texting me to see if I was alive or if I had fallen in the water!
Log off. Shut down. Go outside.
P.S. I fell in the water (so embarrassing). It happens every single time lol! I need to learn to stay away from slippery rocks.
Have a fantastic Thursday! I wasn’t home much yesterday, so today I will probably be busy catching up and getting things done…so I don’t have to do them on the weekend. 🙂
