The hiking craze didn’t end after Garibaldi. 2 days later, I attempted hiking Dog Mountain which is close to Mt Seymour! If you’re looking for an easy hike not too far away from Vancouver, I’d recommend Dog Mountain! 45 minutes drive and a 2-3 hour hike up and down. The only reservation I had was the crazy number of flies at Dog Mountain that I read in reviews… but honestly, the fly situation at Garibaldi was worse..
The four hikers for the day! 🙂 They were so kind to teach me Cantonese along the way haha now I think I’ve one too many languages jumbled up in my brain.
We were starving by the time we got back down to Vancouver so we decided on having Santouka Ramen for lunch! 🙂 It’s been a year since I last went back and its still really good.
Since we didn’t want to waste such a beautiful day away, we decided on our next activity – Cycling! If you ever visit Vancouver, this should be on your to-do list! Stanley Park’s seawall has one of the best views, and its still my favorite cycling route even though I’ve done it more than 3 times! I’ll leave you with pictures to explain the view 🙂
Feeling the sea breeze and cruising by these awesome places made me feel so happy and contented. It made my problems seem so small in this huge world we have.. 🙂
After all that exercise, we needed some post-workout treats! Gelato fit the bill perfectly on a hot summer day 🙂
Enjoy the summer heat!
