Trekking/Hiking 3:00:00 [3]

Today was the shortest distance but probably slowest pace. Packs were still fairly heavy and the terrain was all up and down. Weather was once again perfect! We were at our disappointing (the only one of the trip) campsite by noon and did what we could to make the best of it! One of the highlights for me was collecting beautiful, dry, snappy firewood for each night. I felt so spoiled - I don't think I've ever been backpacking without having to deal with rain and wet gear and wood!

Trekking/Hiking 3:15:00 [3]

Iris and I set off from the Rain Lake Access Point to hike the top loop of the Western Uplands trail. I'd been on the bottom section a couple of times but never been on this section. I am sold on the Rain Lake access point! It felt really remote and I loved that you could rent and pick up canoes right at the water.

We were both SO worried about the bugs ruining the weekend, but they were astonishingly absent! When we first started hiking, we thought it was a fluke, but they never really worsened all weekend. We noticed a few mosquitoes in the swampy areas, but that was pretty much it!

The first day was smooth and relatively easy, although we were both bemoaning the first day pack weight by the time we got to our site. We heard from a couple of other hikers that the first site on Brown Lake was excellent, and we were happy to get there before the other couple did (who we ran into on the trail taking a break). It is kind of crazy how much the site quality can vary. Ours was a 9/10 and theirs was a 2/3. Phew!

We had a lovely loungey afternoon setting up and enjoying happy hour. The evening was super quiet and a beautiful temperature.

Super fun group ride at Kelso followed by a spectacular parking lot picnic. This has become one of my favourite summer traditions, and we had a perfect evening for it!

Touring around at Guelph Lake. On the way home, I almost lost my bike off the rack because I forgot to strap it in. Fortunately I saw it when it was hanging off of one side and was able to pull into a gas station and fix my mistake. Eek!
