Can’t see the forest for the trees

A beautiful day hiking up to Dog Mountain in British Colombia is a stark reminder of the nature that lingers often in our backyard, unbeknownst to us.

Travelling to places we once called home forces us to rediscover a place with new eyes, open to explore areas that were less visible to us when we were bogged down with the daily routine of school, work and other (often fixed) activities. Sometimes we need to take those travelling holidays in the places we think we know in order to break free from old assumptions of what is.

The wildness of the Canadian outdoors, the density of the forest and the wide-open landscapes are something deeply unique to that place in the world: a small tribute to the West Coast.
