A Day Hike From Calgary


Well we had a little snow again this week...and I got to thinking wistfully of summer and warmer days and then I started looking through old photos.
This shot was taken in September last year and shows a view on the Wenkchemna Pass hike in the Rocky Mountains. This was a day hike. We drove out from Calgary, hiked all day and were home tucked in our own beds that same night.
I am itching to get hiking again but it's been a cold spring and only the lower valley hikes are open. The rest are listed as icy or impassable or subject to avalanches.
Rats!

  6. Yes, it is a gorgeous area...we don't have the cold and snow, but then we don't have mountains, either, or the chance to hike in them!

    Have a great week and as the football quarterback said, "Hike!"
