2015 Calendar of Outdoor Adventures

Yes, I am late on getting out a 2014 year in review and am not much of a resolution maker.  So instead or in place of a year end recap of our adventures I thought it would be cool to create a calender for 2015 that highlights the top adventure from the past year for each month.  

All photos are from our actual adventures taken during 2014 as a family.  I hope it gives you, family or not, some fresh ideas and inspiration to get outside in 2015.

JANUARY - West Coast Winter Fog while hiking Mount Maxwell on Salt Spring Island, BC

FEBRUARY - Surfing on Chesterman Beach Tofino, BC

MARCH - Snowshoe Mt. Becher in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, BC

APRIL - Night hike on Mt. Benson Nanaimo, BC

MAY - Backpacking the Sunshine Coast Trail near Powell River, BC

JUNE - Kayaking Ladysmith Harbour Ladysmith, BC

JULY - Backpacking the Vancouver Island Spine Trail near Port Alberni, BC

AUGUST - Mountain Biking the trails of Cumberland, BC

SEPTEMBER - Hiking to the summit of Mt. Arrowsmith, largest peak on southern Vancouver Island

OCTOBER - Rock Climbing on Thanksgiving near Penticton, BC

NOVEMBER - Remembrance Day hike to plane crash site on Mt. Bolduc, National War Memorial

DECEMBER - celebrating the winter solstice while traveling home for the holidays Slave Lake, AB

It certainly was a power packed year of adventures for the On the Beaten Path crew.  2015 is shaping up to be just as adventurous as we continue embrace the #followyourfeet campaign KEEN Canada promotes.  This year our feet will be going on another international adventure and as usual, exploring the wild spaces of Vancouver Island.  Now, if I actually get around to printing a calendar, that would be a miracle.  Cheers!
