Garibaldi is a mess

So many hikers... and now they bring drones with them. Ugh. You can't even get away into nature anymore without a stupid robot flying through the sky. I hate people who fly drones in provincial parks. They're terrible.

but I understand they're just saving video (like people saving photos) of the beauty of the surroundings.

Seriously what the f bc parks should have rules. All of you people that post your pictures on Instagram and Facebook about these places have ruined them for the rest of us. It must stop just enjoy let people find out the old way

I dunno if it's facebook---there are only so many places to hike in the lower mainland that are accessible without 4wd/overnight, and the issue is more overpopulation than facebook/"making them known." Take Golden Ears Park, it's full because we have a fuckton more people here than in the 1990s when my Dad would drive us out there for fun---Kanaka Creek, went there this summer, the falls my dad used to take us to climb on, now there are so many idiots that they have banned climbing on the falls. They have trails where, when my dad took us, it was just the creek running through a wild "regional park." And I can still remember crayfish...

Dad says that when he grew up out in Haney, the water was clear, like those rivers you get out of town---the reason it's all dark now is farm runoff :(

Life is no longer for living, it is for documenting.

hikers dripping their Covid sweat all over each other and flying their robots around. Maybe best to avoid? Wasn’t Garibaldi closed for a while?

featuring trips to pristine wildness where you can take your family only in your expensive enormous 4x4.

I absolutely hate what mass overpopulation has done to my home. This was such a perfect place to live until the rest of the world discovered it and moved in. Now there’s nowhere to go here to find some solitude or peace. Even during the week there are droves of people in what used to be wild spaces where almost no one went. I’m severely depressed due to the overcrowded situation, and knowing that it’s only going to get worse. Human beings aren’t supposed to live like this. The stress of it is killing us, not to mention what it’s doing to the natural world. It’s an epic disaster zone.
