From here to there and back again

I finally got to Tumbler Ridge for some hiking.  We decided to go on Monday, as the weather was supposed to be decent.  We got to Tumbler around 10:30 in the morning, but by the time we actually decided what hike we wanted and drove out to the trail head and started, it was around 11:30.  Finding the actual start of the hike was also part of the adventure as it was not very clearly marked.  We hiked up Cow moose Mountain and it was hard.  Since I was the one who picked the hike, I have no one to blame but myself.  It was an alpine hike, which to me means all uphill.  We didn't come across any big animals (thank goodness) but there were lots of signs that they were around.  We did happen upon a little village of marmots.  They were living in a slide pile near the top of the mountain.  They were pretty curious of us, and watched us for a long time.  The hike was 5.5 kilometres long and we managed to do it in 3.5 hours.  Not a very good time if you are in shape and not damaged, but for me it was alright.  After the mountain climbing, we went to find the famous dinosaur tracks along the river.  That was another 2 or so kms, and really underwhelming when we arrived at the sight.        I was disappointed that they haven't done more to preserve them.  We managed to find one definite print, but the rest we were guessing at.  Oh well I can say that I've seen them. 
I was not surprised to wake up this morning with sore legs.  actually, everything from the hip down is sore and it's getting worse as time goes on.  As Chris is quick to remind me it will be worse tomorrow, YAY! I did manage to get into the pool for the lap swim today even though it was a little slower than last time. 
Tomorrow, we are going into school to start getting ready.  I have decided to do a purge and clean session this time and then maybe go in on the weekend to do some organizing.  We'll see.  My lovely friend Ang is coming along to help, so hopefully we'll get a lot done and I can stop stressing about it.  I am having a hard time believing that September is almost here, I feel like my summer is finally on track...
I have managed to get a few pages done from our trip from last summer. I'm starting to find my groove again, and it's nice.  I have also decided that I have to use up most of the Basic Grey that I have before I can buy any more.  That's hard as I have just seen a new line of theirs that I know I want already.  Sometimes life is just not fair.
