Norvan Falls

One thing that I absolutely love doing, but don’t seem to do it enough, is to play around in nature’s refreshing pools when it’s really hot out. I went for a hike with my cousin will she was visiting from Germany, and we were able to have Norvan Falls to ourself for a brief moment and then when all the people arrived we found a quite pool along Lynn Creek.

Who Killed the Venus Flytrap?
In the public consciousness, the Venus flytrap is prolific. But in the wild, it's disappearing.

A good read on the sad state of the Venus Flytrap. Carnivorous plants native to the USA are increasingly close to becoming extinct, for absolutely no logical reason. All are easy to cultivate and readily available for under $10-$20. There is no need to poach whatsoever. Help save North American carnivores—we have more genera of carnivorous plant than ANY other continent, including the tropics.

Whistler Train Wreck

As per usual, I discovered this spot through someone’s Instagram site and decided that I needed to check it out! I was really pleased with this hike, the trail was super easy and the views were amazing. The train wreck did not disappoint either, I thought it might just be one or two train cars but there were quite a few. It was definitely a neat spot to explore.
