Here are some photos from a weekend walk through Golden Ears. The Cold Creek Falls hike is a really beautiful one that leads along a gravel path through mossed over trees passed a river eventually taking you to a small waterfall at the end of the trail. The hike is definitely on the easier side, but doesn't disappoint at all. It's perfect for a weekend jaunt out with a pal and thermos! It seems a lot of people use this trail as a weekend workout or taking their dogs out for the day because of it's easy scenic terrain, so we'd recommend heading out earlier in the day on weekends if you'd prefer to have more of the trail to yourself.
At Spruce & Gunn one of our goals is to get out and take little adventures outdoors whenever possible, even if the weather is providing us with less than desirable conditions. Depending what province we're in that can mean wearing multiple layers and carrying extra heat packs for shoes & gloves or grabbing an umbrella and a waterproof coat. Last winter we woke up ready for adventure to look out and see a stereotypical gloomy Raincouver day. Instead of letting the weather get us down and scratch out plans we grabbed a hot coffee and drove out to Golden Ears Provincial Park, one of our favourite places to explore, and took a rainy walk around Alouette Lake. The weather ended up giving the lake a beautiful eery atmosphere that was oh so PNW. Added bonus, it seemed like everyone else took the day to stay indoors because we had the entire lake all to ourselves. Here our some snaps from our rainy day out.
