Hi there! I’ve been doing this Instagram thing for more than 6 years now and I realize it’s been awhile since I’ve really introduced myself. I’m Taryn. I’m a freelance writer, hiker, backpacker, adventure traveller and Leave No Trace Master Educator from Vancouver, BC. 
Just for funsies here are a few things many people don’t know about me: 
1. I have a degree in environmental law. I used to practice law but I switched careers about 8 years ago and have zero regrets. 🌎
2. My first backpacking trip ever was the West Coast trail 15 years ago. I cried but I also loved it.🏕
3. I’m obsessed with making sure I meet my daily steps goal. Making time to walk every day (even a little) is so good for my mental health (which I struggle with sometimes). Right now I’m on an unbroken streak of hitting my goal 161 days in a row! 🚶🏽‍♀️
Your turn: Tell me something people don’t know about you!

Awesome times were had finding some different varieties of mushrooms on Galiano Island this weekend! This guys is a fluted black elfin saddle. Apparently this species will shoot out a cloud of spore "smoke" when handled or disturbed💨

Got to see Reel Rock 14 at the @riotheatre yesterday. If you get a chance to see it in theatres, definitely do it! The short film on Joe’s Valley was a standout for me. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

There was also a teaser clip of this beautiful mountain.  I was a bit emotional to see @mdre92 soloing up this mountain, but it’s amazing to see him doing what he loved. Can’t wait to see the film. Can you tell which mountain it is?? .

I've always wanted to stop at this lake on the way back from my grandparent's house, but everytime I try to in the summer it's BUMPIN'. Turns out, Thanksgiving is a better time to stop by anyways. The colours surrounding the lake are to die for 😍

Hike: Whytecliff Park
Location: West Vancouver
Difficulty: Easy
Distance: 1 km
Dogs allowed: Yes, on-leash

Whytecliff Park is a beautiful oceanside spot in West Vancouver. It is a popular place for a relaxing walk and also for scuba diving.

There are some short trails within the trees of Whytecliff Park and a few rugged paths along the cliffs above the water. However, a walk around Whytecliff Park doesn’t feel as if it qualifies as a ‘hike’. That said, Whytecliff is a terrific place to spend some time near the water, catch a sunset, and enjoy the unbeatable coastal scenery. It is also a great place for family outings.

Why do we enjoy so much getting lost in the middle of the woods?

Went for an easy night cruising with my son. No rain gear required 😁

Now I run more at night hours, not many opportunities to take decent photos under limited lighting. Gotta get creative for the next little while 😅

次男とナイトラン12K

途中でヘッドランプのネジ🔩が外れてパーツ探しでタイムロス
ネジは近くに落ちてたんだけどボルト⚙️小さいし暗闇で探すのは無理かもなぁって諦めかけてたら

落としたかもしれない場所を思い出して戻ってみたらありました🔩⚙️.
.
朝すんごい土砂降りでそんな中でもランする人はするんだけど私はそこまで無理しません
気持ちよく走れないと意味ないし
夜にはすっかり道路も乾いてた

心に余裕がないときは無理しない
走りたいときに走れるだけ
マイペース😊

おやすみなさい

Coffee dates with one of my favourite Canadians 💛 Fun fact, before I met this dude I hated coffee and told him there was no way I’d ever be a coffee drinker, the second time we hung out he’d converted me, now I drink it every damn day!

The end of this hike was hard, not because it was actually hard but because it was a rock, and rocks are hard.
