Hiking at Canada Hill, Miri, Borneo

I want to burn some calories and get in shape but working out in gym is quite boring for me; so a few friends suggested that I should seriously consider hiking.

Alright! Hiking sounds interesting and I’ve been doing it everyday for the past week! Aside from burning calories, I want to build balance, flexibility and strength in my legs’ muscles.

I’m a ‘slow’ hiker – often stopping to take pictures (and catch my breath!), therefore, I prefer to hike alone. I do not want to slow any of my friends down.

I took quite a number of pictures when I went hiking – the ones shown below were just a small fraction out of the total amount of photos I snapped in Canada Hill. It took me about one and a half hour to hike from trail No.6A to the ‘white sands’ path (No.3). I told you I am ‘slow’!

Here are the photos (56 pictures!!!) – in no particular order:-

I saw a family with two teenage daughters who were there for the first time; they were asking me which trail is the easiest one.

I often start from either No.6 or No.6A

Relaxing

Relaxing… I could fall asleep, lol

At my own pace (taking my sweet time)

I probably won’t burn much calories as I am too relaxed, lol

Please do not attempt this - climbing and taking pictures at the same time

It was more like a stroll (with lots of sweat!), hehe…

I’m a solo and slow hiker, it is always comforting to see other female hikers around; sometimes the path does get lonely, I usually left the hill an hour before darkness falls. There was a time when I was a little late and my phone kept ringing – mum was very worried. My spouse isn’t around at the moment.

I often bumped into friends of my spouse. Most faces look familiar there, Miri is a small city.

I came across this kid almost everyday there, and he is fast! I heard him shouting to his family members who were left behind, "Faster-lah!" I couldn't help smiling ;)

Those kids can run faster than I am, huhu …

That kid I told you about (in the previous pic) has a younger brother. Look how cute he is! The father has been bringing his kids to Canada Hill almost everyday. Good training!

Just an idea… Shouldn’t this area be equipped with security camera too? :)
