Spring Time Activities: Camping & Hiking
It definitely feels like Spring out there but is it too early to head into the great outdoors?
As we enter into the month of April, Vancouver is experiencing one of its best starts to Spring that its had in several years. While we can only hope that the sun continues to shine on the Lower Mainland, the sunny days open up a whole new realm of activities that many of us put aside last Fall as soon as the clouds (and rain) rolled in.
One of my favourie outdoor activities, that I don’t get to do nearly enough, is camping. I love the chance to spend an entire weekend outdoors and go for walks, hikes and the occasional swim. However, I’m one of those people who is always (and I mean always) cold. So, I’ve been grappling with the question: is it too early to head into the great outdoors for a weekend trip?
I turned down an opportunity to go this past weekend, thinking I’d been freezing throughout the whole trip – I mean, it was still March! But, as the gorgeous Vancouver weekend drew to a close, I found myself feeling as though I’d missed out.
So, I leave the question to you PGX’ers: Is March/April too soon to camp?
