My grandma lives in Ladysmith, so any hiking I've done is around there. I took my boyfriend up to Heart Lake this summer for an overnight trip. Dude was scared by the ANTS. Anyway, I usually day hike around Holland Creek, though this summer I also went to the Folk Fest in Duncan and went up the big mountain there, Tzolhan something or other. There's a big metal cross at the top.
I don't know where the pics are, I'll post to them later.
