As a flatlander from Manitoba I have always been captivated by the mountains of the west. Moving to Kamloops has provided me with the perfect base camp to explore those very peaks that pulled our family west. My typical hiking style can be summed up with "Nothing ventured, nothing gained". Bushwhacking has become an acceptable form of travel for me as it seems that a lot of the great spots are off trail. Hikes done by myself and Marty tend to fall into this category so don't be surprised if this happens on a Marant hike. You can find more information at http://marantrambles.ca. Happy Hiking!
