Another Local Summer
(DETM August Newsletter)
Dear Dave,

You probably remember that last summer, we did a lot of hiking and exploring in our beautiful parks here in BC. It looks like this summer is another opportunity for us to explore locally, at least on the weekends. 
Over the weekend, we went out to the Othello Tunnels in Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park near Hope. 
We liked the workout of the hike over the mountain and seeing the tunnels, but on the long weekend, it was way too crowded. I’d recommend going during a weekday if you are able.
Stay safe and strong.
Dave Emery
