Living in Minnesota has turned Jimmy Butler into an avid outdoorsman, although he's going to need some more practice to really fit in. 

After falling out of a canoe last year after being traded to the Wolves, Butler has now taken up hiking, traveling to Vancouver, Canada for a trip up Chief Mountain.

It looks like Jimmy Buckets enjoyed his way up the mountain, but not so much the trip down. 

A hiker that just happened to run into Butler along the way posted video of him hanging onto a tree, singing a song about his friends leaving him alone. 

The person that bumped into him, only known as @escmgncn, captioned a video she shared by saying she swears on her life that "Jimmy was afraid of heights and was too scared to go back down the mountain."
