`It had nothing to do with gear or footwear or the backpacking fads or philosophies of any particular era or even with getting from point A to point B.
It had to do with how it felt to be in the wild. With what it was like to walk for miles with no reason other than to witness the accumulation of trees and meadows, mountains and deserts, streams and rocks, rivers and grasses, sunrises and sunsets. The experience was powerful and fundamental. It seemed to me that it had always felt like this to be a human in the wild, and as long as the wild existed it would always feel this way.’
Looking back on Canada days🍁❄️🌲 Staying in the Emerald Lake Lodge cabins is a one of a kind experience. You’re given wood to burn in your fire place to stay warm. You’re steps away from an outside hot pool and restaurant. The views are endless with hikes around the lake or up the mountains into the forest (with a chance of watching mini avalanches from afar). This place is what people dream about and @derekflodmand and I were lucky enough to experience it for a REALLY good price during the off/frozen season. If you can brave the cold plan a trip during the winter.. or if your wallet can handle the summer stay go for it😉 One day @dna_travelers will see this lake not so frozen!
