Lightning Lake loop in Manning Park

Lightning Lake loop in Manning Park

Manning Provincial Park is gorgeous! Lisa, Shannon and I had spent our first day hiking up Windy Joe Mountain to the fire lookout. So for our second day in the park we decided to find an easier hike.

So, as we had time we also explored some of the other pretty…

The winter version, the Snowshoe Grind is far less busy, easier and I think it was even more beautiful that it’s famous summertime cousin. Can walks have cousins? I’m going to say they can! This walk will get your heart pumping (I guess you should expect that from any walk with…
