Hiking: Lady MacDonald, Oct 23, 2016

Hiked up to Lady MacDonald peak near Canmore. JM set her usual amazing pace. Started at 830am. Took 5 hours. Amazing hike the whole way up – lots of views. Steep as all heck, so good knees needed. Top 500 meters were challenging, but the snow helped find our footing. No bears. And we saw...

Hiking: Bourgeau and Harvey, Sept 3, 2016

Hiking: Bourgeau and Harvey, Sept 3, 2016

We (Seb and I) hiked this up in no time, but the way down felt long. We encountered a family of 7, with 5 kids under the age of 10– erm, amazing? We hit a bit of snow storm but it cleared and we braved on. Beautiful at this time of year, amazing colours. Larches...

Hiking: Cory and Edith Pass, August 28, 2016

I feel like I have to bring everyone I know here! Magnificent each time. No bears, perfect weather. A few other groups of hikers. This is a hard hike, so I have to remember not to do this on a day before teaching because I need to recover. Feels like a 1/2 marathon. E and...
Hiking: Heart Creek Trail, August 21, 2016

Hiking: Heart Creek Trail, August 21, 2016

T and I walked up Heart Creek Trail on a beautiful sunny day. Easy access and fun leisurely walk to the falls. At that point you have the choice of being adventurous, which we did of course, and got our feet wet and went into to the cave like thing… totally worth it. Fun!

Hiking: Plaines of 6 Glaciers, June 12, 2016

Hiking: Plaines of 6 Glaciers, June 12, 2016

Maria Micheals and I ran up and down to Plaine of 6 Glaciers. Mostly we walked up and ran down because we had to catch a bus. Amazing hike. Super cold and windy passed the tea house, but worth it just to get to walk on the ledge. Another day the view will better.  
Hiking: Grassi Lakes, June 9, 2016

Hiking: Grassi Lakes, June 9, 2016

Grassi Lakes near Canmore — a nice steep hike up some stairs. Seems to be mostly a pathway for climbers. If you keep going to the very top, you’re at a damn and parking lot /: Fun day with Sheena and M.E.!!
