Hello friends, it has been some time since my last post and I am sure many of you were wondering where the heck this Chris guy is hiding. Well a lot has been happening actually and can’t believe it is already nearing the mid point of summer.
For my outdoor adventures it has been a good season having summited Triple Peak and Mount Septimus as trip leader for the Alpine Club of Canada Vancouver Island section. I also mixed in climbing a new route up King’s Peak that I had been wanting to attempt since las year. Lastly for fun , good friend Roxy and I thought doing a “3 Peak Sufferfest” would be a hoot so we did the 3 summits of Forbidden Plateau (Albert Edward – Frink – Castlecrag) in 13hrs covering 2600m elevation over 38kms. This was my most distance ever done in one day….I’m still on a happiness high from this one.
Around the house we have been very busy as the wife and I felt it was time to add a new member to the family. We welcomed beautiful Echo into out house, a gorgeous Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler). She is the perfect dog to join me running, climbing and backpacking across the country with here great spirit and endless energy.
For work I have been fortunate to collaborate this summer with Tourism Nanaimo to write blog posts and shoot photography on all the fun activities in the region and the beautiful outdoor locations. It has been a blast so far and my first post is up in their website, Tourism Nanaimo: Sunrise to Sunset Adventure . I will be posting and sharing all my activities with #ExploreNanaimo on my various social media channels so be sure to keep an eye out for them.
Then the biggest activity that held up my recent blog posts has been the revamping of the website. I really hope you like the changes and my favourite part is the photography gallery. I have a few more tweaks to make to the look and feel but overall I am very happy with the results. Let me know what you think.
I hope you all have been enjoying your summer. I always appreciate comments on feedback on everything I share so don’t hesitate to to leave a comment.
