I live in a small, hippy town nestled in the mountains of British Columbia. We are on the edge of a river that opens up into a large lake that is wonderful for swimming although many people find it cold even in summer. I love swimming! Mountains and water are very special to me. I need to get outside and have an adventure in order to feel settled into a good sense of my preferred self.
Snow in the winter
Here is a view of our lovely mountains taken while on a back country ski excursion. We have great skiing just ten minutes out of town. In winter, I try to ski every weekend.
This is a lake about an hour from us where we like to go canoeing, swimming and cliff jumping. Well, I am more of a swimmer not jumper! But my kids like the giant leaps. Summer means long swims to me.
The other outdoor adventure that I love although I find terrifying is rock climbing. My partner has a passion for it and is very talented. I am not so talented but love being out in the mountains and finding routes. When I have a moment where I can move through my paralyzing fear, it sure feels wonderful.
