I'm taking us back to our September long weekend in Tumbler Ridge today. To a glorious weekend of Autumn hiking with my parents, husband and little girl. The weekend had a terrible weather forecast but we decided to brave it anyways and we ended up seeing the sun way more than we were expecting! We also saw Quality Falls, the Boulder Gardens, and the first snow of the season.
Quality Falls is a favourite for my fam. It's right along the highway on the way to Tumbler Ridge, with a very short hike in that crosses a tiny creek. And Emery LOVES crossing tiny creeks haha. I can't count how many times I've hiked into Quality Falls with my parents before, and already this was Emery's second time (here's her first trip during her first Winter!) but I have never, ever seen it so huge before! It's been a very wet Autumn after a very wet August and Quality Falls had a ton of water.
^^ The falls were flowing quite fast which made Emery rather nervous, leading to the best snuggles ever for mama! ^^
^^ and of course my husband ditched his shoes and socks to cross Quality creek barefoot and get up close to the Falls ^^
^^ note the mismatched gloves, haha. We hadn't gotten to shopping for Winter gear yet ^^
I love these two. And this place. And hiking!
