A holistic health coach and outdoor activity enthusiast. Kayaking, cycling, snow shoeing - and thanks to OutSideWay’s creator - back country hiking reigns as my favourite. Sharing outdoor adventures with my husband and family “fills my well” - and encouraging, coaching women in the 50+ age zone to experience the pleasures and challenges of the outdoors is my “venture-in-process”. #karentogo

Wilderness Bluff trail (https://wrweo.ca/wp/the-bluff-trail/) is a local favourite of mine - was fun to introduce it to a neighbour-friend. Along with another hiking friend we did the perimeter of the first two loops (https://i2.wp.com/wrweo.ca/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/LNT_bluff_trail_maprevised2016-10-26.jpg?ssl=1). About 17K total - beautiful sunny day, basically no bugs. So blessed to have this hike an hour from home!
I met three new guy paddlers this trip - making a total of 7 men who were VERY helpful with the heavy lifting - add 4 of us women, we were a group of 11. Art, the organizer of this trip - and several other cycling and hiking events @hammerhead and I have been part of - is so capable and amiable and just a lot of fun to be with. He's the guy second on the left sitting on the rock of the inner circle. We'd had a good day; hiking; competing who was most accurate at throwing rocks to knock a plastic bottle off a ledge; couple of the guys did go out for a crazy-windy paddle; relaxed and read - and after this photo got busy making a bonfire on the beach and cooking supper. This is the life!
Too windy to paddle around the Cape - about 30K, gusting higher - so it's a hiking day. Boats poised for launching the next day, with a better wind report. Thankfully we have cell coverage on the beach - and some very able and experienced paddlers in the group. Lots of weather discussion, which is both fun and educational for me.
