Trip to Big Hill Springs

During the Summer Holidays, we headed out to hike in Big Hill Springs with friends.

It was a super humid day, with oodles and oodles of mosquitoes. The kind of mosquito that bit while we walked, but only some of us were victims. Jan and Kayla, for example, had no bites at all, while I was covered in itchy bumps from the neck up.

Yay for having delicious mosquito-baby growing blood. O_O

Still, the walk itself was fabulous, with loads of little waterfalls and streams, rocky outcrops and that thick quiet that you can only get from being between clustered trees.

It was a pretty gloomy-looking day, which of course made for great photos. I just love overcast skies to contrast with the deep green of the treetops.

Have a look. 🙂

This place is picturesque, I tell you. I can’t wait to go back and explore some more.

By the way, have I told you about the Skolion anthology, Charon’s Song? If you subscribe to their newsletter, you’ll get a free anthology of 10 stories by Skolion authors, including yours truly. The stories all have a similar theme–mind-blowing since we weren’t given a theme to write to at the start of the project! I’m honoured beyond words to be a part of this, and can’t believe I have a story in an anthology with authors I look up to so much.

My story, Robin of Locksley, is a post-apocalyptic gender-bended retelling of Robin Hood. Here’s an excerpt. 🙂

Go on, what are you waiting for? Subscribe now and get this free sample of our writing styles. I know you’ll love the Skolion crowd as much as I do.

Thanks for stopping by.
