Goldstream Park


My Dad and I went for a beautiful hike through Goldstream
 Park to watch the salmon swim upstream, near the waterfall


I took some photos as it was such a beautiful day, albeit icy and a bit cold


There are no pictures of salmon though as they were scarce and hard to photograph :(


But enjoy these for now...


The trail


The cool hollowed out log


Spooky and majestic


Then came the actual exercise portion of the hike: Stairs!


So many stairs! 


And once you go down... you know it'll be a bi*ch climbing back up!


Icicles and a "cold shower" haha


It was beautiful looking at a wall of flowing water lined with frozen foliage


Me looking at the fishies


The waterfall


Selfie and the long climb back to the top


Comment: I urge everyone to find a set of stairs today and 
 go up them two or three times. Climbing is so great for the body 
and helps give both your metabolism and muscles an extra boost!

Wow - that looks just beautiful! I love the icicles especially. And yes, definitely good to climb stairs each day! A few times I've climbed the 12 or so flights of stairs up to my office at work; it's something I could do more often this winter, for sure.
