I love Scout Magazine. It’s got nothing to do with Scouts, but I’ll let it off! It’s full of all those quirky little nuggets that make Greater Vancouver greater. This article’s actually about Galiano – the island not the Harvey Wallbanger ingredient. I bring it to your attention because of serendipity.
Just the other day, I was chatting to a fellow snowshoer at Callaghan Valley about how I’d walked this trail on Galiano, and looked down onto the tops of very tall trees from a vertiginous path.
I smiled as soon as I saw this article because there are the very trees in one of the photos. Please click on the photo or the link and read the short article by Ariel Taylor, as she implores you to get your ass outside. (I’ve noticed that North Americans seem to have a lot of mules and donkeys…). If you don’t actually possess a beast of burden, then I suggest you take your own arse outside instead.
