YOUR GOOD VIBES
(...) I wanted to send a huge thank you to you! My son and I have been able to experience so many trails and hikes around the city this summer since discovering your instagram, blog and trails book! 💖 We are now enjoying checking off all the ones we’ve done and want to work through the whole book!
Thanks! We downloaded your guide and will keep the adventures going 🤗. We’ve been hiking and backpacking for a long time now, but funny how we never explored our own backyard! Thank you again for all your amazing suggestions! 👍
Wow! Just discovered your page through a blog I find online... can’t believe I haven’t heard of you and what you have put out with all the local trail maps! Amazing!! I live in Ottawa and am also looking for new trails or ones within a few hours from here, etc which doesn’t seem to have any info in one place. Super pumped about finding this/you! Going to do a solo (...) you're photos of it have me super excited!
You keep inspiring me to branch out and try new things to help me maintain my mental health. Love following you and your positive vibes 🙂
Such an incredible adventure!! And all inspired by your guide (and posts/stories here)!! Lookin forward to many more!!
We actually printed off your scavenger hunt bingo card the last time we took them out. The [kids] LOVED it!!”
