This was my first time on Yamnuska – it’s one of a few classic local destinations that has been on my list of places to go for a while. I had an afternoon free, and Sarah was keen to come along with the dogs, and so we thought we’d see how far we could go with them.
The answer? Not past the chains, but dogs that are happy to scramble a little can definitely make it that far.
It was a sort-of trail running day. The running was slow and a little unenthusiastic (recovering from illness, jetlag and three weeks at sea level can tend to do that), but we escaped the kraken at any rate.
