Hiker Lori Blog

Welcome to my blog! Mostly you find my “everything outdoors & tasty” updates on Instagram and Facebook.

I’ll write about all things self-propelled and tasty. My favourite subjects are walking, urban hiking, hiking the Rockies (or anywhere else!), active transport on foot and bike and cooking colourful food with fantastic flavours. I also love to write about my active adventures across Canada and anywhere else we visit.

CTV Views and Art Walks in Calgary!

I dropped into CTV Morning Live to share some colourful Escarpment and Art walkabouts along the Bow River! The walk routes in my book, Calgary’s Best Walks, are about 5-7 km but I also make it easy to combine walks so you can walk longer or do a linear walk and transit back. Today I combined walks 15 and 17 and lead viewers from Sunnyside to Crescent Heights, Bridgeland to East Village, and back along the Bow River. Grab a signed copy of my book here or at bookstores, shops and cafés all over the...
