Another weekend, another hike up Mont Royal. I had a phone conversation with @Hig this week, and I am excited about the prospect of borrowing one of his packrafts for a time. Montreal, being an island, has a lot of interesting waters and islsnds that look like they would be interesting to explore. I think the combination of a packraft and I bike could make for some interesting adventures in the area.
Went for another urban hike this weekend. It was a similar route to last week, except this week I was joined by @reneetougas and, inspired by watching some videos on rucking, I put a concrete paving stone in my day pack.
I actually enjoy urban hiking, I just wish the ground wasn't so hard and flat.
Today I was without a car in the city, and had a beautiful day that needed to be taken advantage of. Inspired by some reading I had done earlier in the week I decided to embark on an urban hike. I headed out after a late lunch and managed to get about 12 miles in before returning home to make supper. All-in-all not a bad day, though my feet were complaining by the end about all of the pavement I had subjected them to.
@reneetougas and I took our bikes out for our first ride of the season. We had grand visions of following the Trans Canada Trail off of the island onto Montreal's south shore, however a flat tire threw a wrench into our plans. We ended-up having to walk our bikes to a bicycle shop to have the tire repaired. Lucky for us the bike store had a built-in cafe, and I managed to score a free cappuccino with my repair. All-in-all we managed to get in a 24km ride by the time we made it back home. Now I must work on taxes... yuck.
On day 2 of our Stratton Maine trip we took a break from skiing and did something we haven't done in a very long time - snowshoeing. I can't remember snowshoeing being this much fun. The last time we did it I thought it was kind of boring and a lot of work. I think today has significantly shifted my opinion.
