The long weekend is over. That’s too bad. I really needed the three days off. I’ve been working OT for the last three weeks. It was good to just to sleep in everyday.
I’m looking at a map right now and I just realized I hiked around 10 km total today. It didn’t seem so far at the time but I’m really tired right now. I essentially hiked from North Rd. in Coquitlam, up to SFU, and then to Burnaby Mountain Park where the lovely Horizons restaurant is located. I’d never been there before. The view kicks ass from the park. You’re so high up you can see so far into the west. I was able to see all of Burnaby, downtown Vancouver, and it just visible but I could make out the tall buildings on campus at UBC. The sun had just broken out too while I was looking at all this. It was beautiful, sorta like that “stay gold” moment with Ponyboy.
Then it was time to head back. Not ten minutes into my journey home, the sun was behind the mountain and trail got dark quite fast. By the time I got back to my car about an hour later, it was nearly pitch black. I gotta start bringing lighting with me or start earlier. Anyways, I’m beat now.
Time to go to bed.
