More exploring and bushwhacking

I woke up to an email from Sheila suggesting some exploring at Bannock Point – so off I went with puppies in tow for almost three hours of wading through snow, postholing, bushwhacking up ridges and general outdoor shenanigans.

I know it was good because at the end of the hike, my clothes were soaked with sweat.

After yesterday’s soul-stomping road walk, today was good. And we talked about that last night in bed. When we should have been falling asleep, we talked and talked – what to do? Where to live? What makes sense? What can we afford? Most importantly, what calls us home?

We (at least I) have no definitive answers at this point.

While I was climbing up ridges at Bannock Point, Simon drove to Nelson to pick up a ShopVac and on the way back, he explored roads that might (and, in some cases, did) lead to trails. He thinks there are places to explore that we might like. I’m ready to do it – especially at this time of year when the high places are inaccessible – not because they are still covered in snow, but because of avalanche danger.

But I’ve had my hike, my short nap and chocolate – warm fire in the wood stove. I think I’ll do some writing.
