Because it's rare to have a nice sunny day in Vancouver. And even more rare for it to be a nice sunny day in November.
We got all bundled up and went hiking, in what I call our backyard.
There are many luxuries of living in Vancouver, and one of them is the proximity to nature.
This is literally someone's backyard, on a mountain.
And only 20 minutes drive from our home.
I got caught up with the fungi.
They were everywhere, if you looked hard enough.
This was my favourite log of our entire hike.
This is precisely the reason why I didn't want to move back to Ontario, and never will. (Sorry Mum and Dad.)
It's logs like that, and trees like this.
It's forests I can explore, and mountains I can climb.
Plus oceans I can smell in the air.
Yeah, oceans and beaches, we have those too. (Come on Mum and Dad, I know you want to be here too.)
