    As summer comes to an end, we're looking back at some of our favourite adventures. This unedited moment: biking a rough trail into the wilderness of BC's extreme north west corner. We had no trail map to follow, just a few murmurs on a backcountry forum letting us know this path existed. Alone with no sign of civilization for miles and miles. Just the way I like it. Stay tuned for some new videos hitting the blog soon.

    Spent the afternoon climbing into the clouds, above the endless golden poplar trees, and overlooking Bennett Lake which rests at the end of the Chilkoot trail. Over a hundred years ago, 100,000 prospectors entered that Valley into the Yukon looking for gold. I'm here just looking for a good view to have lunch at.

    Where do you go when you want to feel like the only person in the world? Take me to a lake at sunset and let me float until the sun fades in the distance. There's no better feeling than that. ------ #explorebc #explorecanada #glampinghub #myglampingstory

    Why is it always easier to hit the snooze button, when the sunrise session has way more rewards? Am I the only one that goes on vacation not to relax, but to jam pack my days with activity then returns home ludicrously lazy? How do you stay motivated? #freelancerproblems

    It's nights like these that you hope will last a little longer. @glampinghub #myglampingstory

    Sunday reflection: if you aren't living life to the fullest, start now. Seize every opportunity to enjoy what's around you, stay out longer, challenge yourself to go further, over indulge at dinner, talk to everyone you meet, stay up to watch the stars, wake up to see the sun rise and find out what's beyond the horizon. Life's too short to stay in a bubble and within your comfort zone. Spent 4 exhausting days in the Chilcotin region of BC, eating, drinking and laughing far too much but above all, playing and enjoying life. @glampinghub || #myglampingstory || #glampinghub

    Our home for the last few nights. Kieran and I are usually a little bit of dirt bag backpackers so it's been an unreal treat to spoil ourselves with a bit of glamping. Sleeping on raised platforms above the Chilko river as millions of sockeye salmon spawn and dozens of grizzlies come to feed has been a surreal experience. It's probably the first time I've been excited to see a bear at camp. Thanks to @glampinghub for making it possible. #myglampingstory || #glampinghub

    Once in a while, you stumble upon something amazing. A place that feels like home yet a dream. Our day started at the crack of dawn, emerging from our frost covered safari tents where our breath was visible but the thick blankets warmed us for the night. As the fog lifted and thr sun rose, we woke ourselves by paddling glassy waters in search of grizzlies. It's a scene I won't soon forget. @glampinghub || #myglampingstory || #glampinghub #explorecanada || #explorebc

    Can't get over these intense colours. I grew up in a desert region and have spent most my adult life far from any fall foliage. What a mistake, as it is such beautiful palettes and patchworks of colour. We're leaving the Yukon for a few days to go explore the Chilotins with @glampinghub and @bear.camp. Super excited to explore this new-to-us region of BC, but hoping fall hangs on a little longer in the North or is starting to peak down south. Anyone been to Chilko Lake or the Chilcotins? Would love to hear some advice.
