Well it’s officially fall and we’re back from our final Irie Adventure Tours hiking trip of the summer. We had a blast at Island Lake Lodge! We could not have asked for a better way to wrap up an incredible summer. Our group spent 3 days and 3 nights hiking in gorgeous fall colours and cool mountain air, eating exquisitely prepared five-star meals, and relaxing in rustic luxury. A one of a kind experience in a truly magical setting!Island Lake Lodge, we leave feeling rejuvenated and recharged. A few days in the mountains, away from noise and distractions is like a reset button to ease the transition between seasons.
It’s amazing how different the land looks as the seasons change. Our last hiking trip at ILL was in July – at the beginning of their hiking season. At that time there were remnants of winter snow, spring wildflowers, and intense summer sun. Last week everything looked different. The snow did not survive the heat of the summer, even in the high alpine, and the bright green leaves had been replaced with fiery reds and oranges. The summer heat lingered, but was accompanied by a refreshing autumn air, and the smell of fallen leaves completed the sensory delight. The beauty of autumn in the mountains truly is astounding!
Now that our summer season has come to an end, we have a couple weeks of down time before we jump right into preparing for the Winter 2014/2015. Our first stop is the Toronto Snow Show, one of the largest Ski-Snowboard-Travel trade shows in North America! We’d love to meet all our Eastern friends and followers, so stop by and say hello; we’ll be there October 16-19 at booth 217! Get all the details at www.torontosnowshow.com
