Get lost, pleb.

Needles are a specialized leaf (actually the short stem section they're on is technically the leaf equivalent), adapted to reduce transpiration levels and reserve water with a slightly higher salt content so as not to burst and kill cells in freezing temps.

You live in the fucking flatlands, you're only relatively closer to mountains than some. Fuck you.

Here's a picture from my recent hike up the Pierce lk trail near Chilliwack BC. It's a steep hike pretty much the whole way but it's absolutely beautiful, especially if you take it further and go up MacFarlane. Unfortunately for me we were pressed for time and has to turn back half an hour before we hit the lower lakes because it was getting dark.

If anyone wants advice for hikes near Chilliwack I know a few

But Calgary itself is not in the mountains. It's firmly within the flat lands. Didn't realize you could get that nice of a view from that place though.

Calgary does suck. It contrasts the land like a cancer. The only good thing is that Banff is an hour drive away. Try living in Toronto... we have like two parks (Bruce Peninsula and Algonquin) in the area... and they are so goddamn overcrowded with people.

>>1137126
Yes. I live in them. Literally just go to google street view and drop yourself anywhere in the Calgary area. It's Saskatchewan tier.

>>1137148
I can get 1000m of climbing on a 3ish hour bike ride. That's not happening in the flat parts of Saskatchewan.

I also live in them. Not flat.

Being close to a thing does not make where you live that thing. The Calgary area is still pretty good for /out/, but it's not a mountain city at all.

Are you in the foothills? That's the only place within the prairie I know of that isn't relatively flat.

The pass isn't for camping it is literally just for day pass to SOME parks.

backcountry camping is $9/night where I am, which is less that the daypass, but you'd still need the daypass to park your car while camping

I camp by lakeland provincial park by Lac la Biche Alberta. I'll be doing some ice fishing this winter. In the summer, there are some good quad trails, and it's not busy. If you like canoeing, you can do a circuit with campsites along the way. Some of the campgrounds are private islands. Anywhere in the foothills is good.

Anyone here knows how to get a crown land map in Quebec? I tried using the mern maps and it landed me right in private land. Had to do some guess work to find a public spot to camp.
I know Ontario as a great website that shows every crown land but I not to keen about driving 5h+ to camp.

Pic related : the spot I found after a good bit of hiking

Nice view but lacking in resources, but like I said it's the "lol dunno" factor that bothers me.
Everybody I talked to here seems to just go camp in reserve or state parks, where you have to pay + a bunch of restrictions ( No hunting, no firewood collection ect).

I have been researching the topic for a while and the lack of resources when it comes to public land in Quebec is driving me nuts.

what's the point of such big city in bumfuck nowhere? And why do companies have offices there? What's the industry of that place?

The Calgary economy is pretty much entirely based on energy afaik. Oil and gas being the big money maker, though that field is badly suffering under the current provincial government and Calgary is slowly becoming Canadian Detroit. I've never actually worked or lived there though, so the Calgary anons itt could give a much more accurate assessment than me.
>>
>>1138555
>>1138577
The economy mostly recovered since the oil price drop and it is certainly not turning into Detroit now that oil price is stable.
I dunno if the economy is diverse enough to survive another price drop in the future tho. I dont think it is yet.

Where my Ontario bros at? Was just camping in the kawartha highlands and my fuck is it getting chilly

Good to hear they've gotten back on their feet more or less. Hopefully things stay fairly stable for a while so that Calgary can get better prepared for the next economic hit..

Any Vancouver people go /out/ to shoot? I'm kind of a stay at home dude, but I'd love to go out somewhere where I could shoot and enjoy the great outdoors. I'm thinking somewhere out beyond the Lower Mainland and Squamish. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Also, not a hunter and ALWAYS clean up after myself. If there is one thing I hate it is the lowlifes that leave their spent cartridges all over the ground (Sylvester road).

I camped in terra cotta last year after this time. It was pretty warm but did get below freezing at night. I don't know if you would call it winter camping.

Would like to do three or four days much further north on the bruce trail this december because I haven't done any real winter camping lately.

>>1138597
Very nice area, so is the queen elizabeth wildlands near there.

Also any of the crown land north of barrie, the trans canada trail runs through or runs right next to a lot of it.

>>1138501
You have to pay for access or contact the individual municipal offices. Keep looking, you'll find it.. learn some french. also they use american terminology for crown land. gl.

100% frenchiiesss, still thx for the advice.

Anyway i went to a cartographer and she told me there wasn't any public resource when it came to crown land. The only way she knew of was the Trak map garmin maps ( https://www.trakmaps.com/fr/produits/gps/topo/quebec/garmin/ )

I think all we need is to force them to finally secede and just mind their own business. It would be better for both parties involved imo.

no they have to go to france but leave all the hot wimmins for the fist nations to have away with them

I would. Sad thing is in Quebec our government doesn't give a shit about the rest of Canada.
