A rugged hike you went on, Maria. Glad you made it safely. The view is spectacular.
That sounds great, Maria. Maybe someday we can.
Thank you all for the nice comments, glad you dropped in.Patsyanne, if I knew what I was getting into, I would have gladly stayed in my vehicle!:))I would have not left you Snooker, you and I could have gone down the road to Storm Mountain Lodge for coffee:))
How beautiful. Afraid my worn out old pins wouldn't carry me up those mountains though, so it's lovely to sit here and view and dream!
What a sight! Snooker says she'd be left at the bottom? I wouldn't even have gotten out of the vehicle. Lovely, lovely mountains. Thanks, Maria
Thanks Maria, it's a beautiful set, love it.
If you were struggling with this hike, Maria, then I was very lucky not to be on it. You'd have left me in a snow bank way down at the beginning of it. Interesting about the fire break but they are necessary sometimes. Great view and so clear. Many thanks, my friend.
Hi Snooker,Today's hike was just a short drive from the Alberta/B.C. border in the Kootenay National Park:Stanley Glacier.Well six of us really struggled up this trail, It was a challenge. The trail started out just fine, however it soon deteriorated to an up-ski-tourer's-track and we kept falling into holes, especially the guys who are, understandably bigger and heavier than we girls. However, we did our share too.The forest is slowly regenerating. A fire on August 2003 was intentionally set by crew to create a fireguard against the spread of the massive Tokumm-Verendrye wildfire.A beautiful sunny day with an amazing view of the mountains but I was never so glad to see the end of this hike. From now on we have decided that this hike is strictly a summer hike! :)) I'll bet you are glad you were not able to join:)Till next week my friend. Keep well.
