Hi there, I´d like to say hello from Germany
My wife and I like hiking but unfortunately we´re living in a flat area, so we mainly do that during our vacations. That´s the reason why we prefer easier routes between 5-8 hours (app. 12 km with 1200m elevation or 25 km with no elevation) without scrambling (no "use of our hands") ad without any special gear like snowshoes, ropes etc.
We´ve already visited some national parks in the US and Canada (e. g. Olympic, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier, Banff, Jasper...) but this time we would like to focus on canada. Until now it was pretty difficult to find such routes for dayhikes, so I´m very happy that I found this website now!!!
Our next trip will be starting our roundtrip early in june 2017 (4 weeks) in Seattle. This time we´d like to focus on canada so I´m very happy to get some ideas where to stay longer (Vancouver Island, Whistler, Jasper, Banff) because I´m a little bit afraid of snow especially in Banff and Jasper. But probably that should be discussed in the right thread?
Oh: I´m pleased about any corrections of spelling and grammar!
