We had a healthy dose of charming birdsong on yesterday’s fun hike through this pretty forest. 🌱💫🌿 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We also had a mouse run across someone’s bare foot in a bold and oddly timed dash. 🐀🤔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Visiting unceded Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) & xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) territory.

Throwback to a trip to one of our all-time favourite places in Garibaldi Park. Sometimes it feels like we’re in the tropics because the forests that we visit are so incredibly lush. The participants will often say that it feels like we’re in a jungle. Being able to visit old growth forests is an honour and an important way to connect to the long history and ancient beauty of the land. That’s a powerfully healing thing to experience. #natureheals #allmyfriendsarewild Visiting Skwxwú7mesh and Lil'wat territory.

Buttercup picnic ☀️ Gardner’s probably have nightmares about a field like this but it sure is pretty to watch these splashes of yellow dancing in the sunshine. A lovely little place for a picnic 🐝💛 #natureheals #allmyfriendsarewild

Cracking open life’s mysteries 🐣 A friend gifted us some geodes and we had fun cracking them open. They were all so different and so beautiful inside! As usual, we are completely dazzled by the wonders of nature. 😍 #natureheals #allmyfriendsarewild

We went to check out a new area that we’ve never been to last week and it did not disappoint. A beautiful slough to stroll along near Minnekhada was a perfect place to be on this day. We’ll be back for some more fishing and frog spotting! 🐸 #natureheals ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Visiting Katzie, Tsawwassen & Stó:lō territory.

Just letting the whales know we’re here so they can pop on by whenever 🤓🧐 As usual, we had no visits from our whale friends but we did see seals and a tricky otter, an eel and a pile worm (gross). Low tide days are good days! #natureheals #allmyfriendsarewild Visiting Skwxwú7mesh, səl̓ilwətaɁɬ & xʷməθkʷəy̓əm territory. at Coast Salish Territory

Just heading on over to coffee rock at coffee o’clock. Throwback to one of last summer’s location scouts at a very perfect lake. Hopefully we’ll be back! The dark & starry sky here was phenomal!🤞🏽 #natureheals #allmyfriendsarewild Visiting St'at'imc territory.

Filtered sunshine and a happy, ferny understory made this pocket of forest so charming to stroll through. Nature is a pretty helpful antidote for those noisy city jitters. #natureheals #allmyfriendsarewild Visiting unceded Skwxwú7mesh territory. at Downtown Eastside

Here’s a little dose of green to start the day off right. One of the most wonderful things that happens in the forest is when the ground is completely draped in plants. It’s wondrous and brings absolute magic to a forest walk. We also have big love for a good moss-draped forest but these spring beauties are extra special. Thanks nature! ✨💫 #natureheals at Coast Salish Territory

Throwback to a perfect, super amazing west coast sunset. What more could we ask for than to sleep beside the wide open sea? Well, turns out we could ask for sleep. This was a fairly #notsleeping night because bears. 😬🐻 There was certainly a bear, but more importantly, there was a persistent mouse that sounded like a bear... to nighttime imaginations. 🐀🧐😴 #allmyfriendsarewild at Pacheedaht First Nation

Can you spot the angler? We spent some time water gazing into deep green pools in search of the shadows of steelhead. There’s something mesmerizing and cathartic about water’s transition from fast to slow. #natureheals #allmyfriendsarewild at Coast Salish Territory

Picnicking with the twins the other day 🏔🏔 The mountain view here always wins hearts. Our picnics are pretty major heart-winner-overs as well! ❤️🍽❤️ #natureheals #allmyfriendsarewild ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Visiting the unceded homelands of Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) & xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nations. at North Vancouver, British Columbia

A rainy day is well spent with the sea. We pushed our way through tunnels of salal to get to beautiful, stormy sea bluffs and smelled that cold & salty rose-filled air until we were tickled & dizzy. It was absolute magic! 🌊💨🌧💎 #natureheals #allmyfriendsarewild Visiting the unceded Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) & xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nations land.

Beavers and eagles and frogs, oh my! So much busy wildlife and birdsong to be seen and heard in wetlands. Plenty of cranky sounding hummingbirds dominated the soundscape here. Beautiful 😍 #natureheals #allmyfriendsarewild ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Visiting beautiful Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) & xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) land.

When lakes become mirrors. 💎 The still surface of this lake made for a perfect photography walk around the shoreline. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.🌲🌲🌲 #natureheals #allmyfriendsarewild
