Welcome to the blog!

I would like to welcome you to Canuck Outdoors and would like to sincerely thank you for stopping by. Let me tell you a little about the idea behind this blog. My name, for those of you interested, is Tristan Edwards. I am a 24 year old recent college grad who also happens to really love the outdoors, despite how little time I spend in them. I decided to start this blog as a way for people local to the Canadian Rockies to share their knowledge and insight into things to do, places to see, and gear to get or avoid when you’re heading out into the Rockies. Yes, there’s a plethora of websites and books and Podcasts and what have you that have beaten the subject of the Canadian Rockies to death, but I hope this blog will offer something unique and insightful that you may not find elsewhere. Maybe it will be a new place to go hiking or backpacking that’s way off the beaten trail and isn’t covered elsewhere because of it, or maybe it will just be the fact that it’s a blog written by people who have spent their lives living, eating, and breathing the Rockies. Oh, and don’t forget the wild stories of fun, and venture, and the odd misfortune you’ll be sure to hear about. Whatever the case may be, I hope you enjoy your time here and we’d love to hear from you!

Tristan
