The Smith family and I first met at Goldstream park a few years ago during a rare snowfall blanketing Victoria!
The children had on their snug little mittens and the family’s little baby girl spent some of her time cozy and wrapped up on mama’s back. I love babywearing, it’s something about the closeness of a content sleeping little one, the vibrant colours and unique patterns!
The Smith’s are an adventurous and truly west coast family. We hiked a little ways into goldstream to find that the waterfall had frozen, a beautiful monument of ice with the sound of the coursing water that ran beneath it’s icy shell. Once we had a chance to full take in the waterfall the family’s sweet little boy reminded us that no hike in the park is complete without discovering hidden spots within trees!
