Heiko’s Trail and the Bisaro Cave

There is an otherworldly place just outside of Fernie. In this place, water carves its way out of the earth, and over geologic timespans, creates a massive hole in the side of a mountain. At this interface, darkness intermingles with light effortlessly to create an entirely separate ecosystem from the surroundings.

Crowsnest Mountain

Good hikes are rarely easy. Great hikes scare you. The best hikes combine sore legs, crippling fear, along with moments of despair and capability, and leave you feeling infinite.

Taking the High Road

Five hours in and the sun is out in full force. Your mind is whirling, your muscles are firing and your fingers are like cocktail sausages. But for some reason it feels just right. You feel strangely free. Free from everyday life, reality, decisions and time.
