Iâ€™m feeling a little adrift this week; Iâ€™m blaming it on lack of sleep and quality exercise.
I know â€˜lack of quality exerciseâ€™ implies thereâ€™s been some exercise, but the truth is I hardly exercised this week; Iâ€™m blaming that on the weather.
The weekend canâ€™t come soon enough; an afternoon up on the mountain should help reset my lagging system.
I’m so so tired… I need a reset button.
The hike up to Dam Mountain now has an official extreme-work-out sounding name; The Snowshoe Grind
I like it! It’s just like the Grouse Grind.
I always thought the trail had quite a steep incline, but I couldnâ€™t determine whether it was a difficult hike or I was just out of shape.
Now I know itâ€™s a little bit of both.
It’s being billed to as the (winter) Grouse Grind alternative, which makes me feel better, I’m not just taking a hike, I’m actually exercising!
This is the view you’re rewarded with once you finally make it up to the peak of the mountain.
From up here; a picnic, conversation, rest… and prep for the descent.
It’s supposed to be sunny this weekend; so we’re in for breathtaking views.
Breaks are important too… to take a breather, make new friends and even get tips from the pros sometimes.
The Grouse Snowshoe Grind is a 4.3km trail, and there’s hot chocolate and warmth down at the chalet when you’re down.
