July 8 is National Chocolate Almond Day
I scored some vegan dark chocolate covered almonds at the Safeway/Sobeys and fashioned my own little trail mix out of them
- Brazil nuts
- coconut flakes
- chocolate covered almonds
Put it all in a baggy and hit the old Highway 99 for another trip in The Pickle with Duncan
He made a useless copilot
We went to Joffre Lakes
This hike was pretty short and dusty and full of people – I saw so many young little families and thought of Sarah missing hers… or hers missing her rather, every step of the way. The view was stunning.
Had a beer with my DIY trail mix and then headed back down the mountain.
Once back on the road, we pulled over for a lovely little swim at One Mile Lake, drove a little further, then had another swim at Lost Lake with some wine and spent the night in Whistler
Not a bad Chocolate Covered Almond Day at all! Thank you almonds for your vitamin E and healthy fats and protein, and chocolate for your deliciousness!
