I'm not an experienced hiker, but I've been hiking quite a bit lately with my friends.  I have to say.. it gets VERY tiring especially when you have to climb around using all arms and legs just to balance yourself.

Recently, I've been to Garibaldi Lake, a hiking place just before Whistler in BC where glacier waters fill up the lake, making it freezing cold all year round.  As one of the many crochet-addictees on craftster, I decided to bring one of my completed projects along with me on the 22km hike!

The doll is call Anpanman, a japanese cartoon character that's supposed to be a superman with its head made up of bread (or something like that) ~~ it was made using very thin mohair yarn and felt for the eyes, eyebrows, belts, etc.  There's actually a cape to it on its back although you can't really see it in this picture!

For more pictures of my hike, visit my blog at http://jcy-works.blogspot.com to see my full post for the doll.  The views from the hike are truly amazing.  Feel free to leave comments! =)
