I set off to hike the Baden Powell trail this morning.
For the life of me I could not find the trail head at the Horseshoe Bay end. I wandered up and down the highways, battled pricker bushes and crossed streams, but the trail head never showed itself...
After a bit I just started to run. I ran along the highway with swarms of road bikers headed north. After a few km it seemed my only option was to start up route 99 to Squamish. Thats not a smart place to go for a jog, so I turned toward the ocean.

Back across the Lion's Gate Bridge, through Stanley Park and finally over the Burrard Bridge back into Kits, I made it home. After a failed attempt at an early spring hike I still managed to get a good 20+km run in, meet a new friend and have an excuse to demolish a Michael Phelps-sized breakfast and take a 3hr nap!
