Checking Out

Once in awhile, routine that is comfortable, predictable, helpful becomes monotonous. The same rhythm of breakfast, movie, get dressed, play, lunch, nap, etc. makes for some fun mornings, but it also gets me into a sedentary groove.
Variety, they say, is the spice of life.
And I'm all about the carpe diem.
So, this weekend we're breaking free of the routine: no phones, no electricity, no running water, no shopping, no errands, no playgroups, no parks. We're taking our family (and another) an hour and a half out of the city, and into the mountains. We'll park our trucks at the side of the highway in the Kluane National Park, and hike into a cabin. It will be a rough hike, and I'm told there's snow. I know that this cabin sits right next door to the tallest peaks I've ever seen, in a range used by mountaineers to practice for Everest climbs.
I know we'll have an adventure, one way or another.
I'm so excited to be going back to one of my favourite places, with the people I love. I am hoping the fresh air and new scenery gives my poor heart a chance to air out some of the stagnant must that's been sitting in there.
Taken the last time we were at the cabin.
I really, really hope some of this snow is gone!
