Springtime is my most favorite season. Vitality bursts forth everywhere. As Kirk once said “Spring’s such a drama queen.” It’s so true. Everything in nature vies for your attention. Birds serenade you as dawn approaches. The trees are full of buds ready to explode with colour. And the sounds of the rivers, creeks, and waterfalls, what can I say? If I did say anything you couldn’t hear me anyways over the roar of the water. If you haven’t gone hiking in the spring, I highly encourage it. I’m looking forward to hiking the raw beauty of Fry Creek again. And what about Pilot Bay? The most zen of trails, maybe it’s because Kootenay Lake is never far from sight, holding a calm energy. Ah yes, spring fever is in the air.
