Early season 'hiking' is always interesting.... Should a person take snowshoes? Maybe even skis? Should you take a chance that the trail can be done in boots?? Late March / early April outings are always a bit of a gamble, and last weekend the dice rolled in our favor - my bestest friend Toni joined me for the weekend out in Canmore and we wandered up to the always beautiful Boom Lake.
|Just a bit of snow!|
|An absolutely gorgeous day with my BFF!|
|We opted to forego the snowshoes.|
|Stay ON the trail... the snow was pretty deep!|
|We made it!|
|Lovely, wintery, Boom Lake|
The snowy adventure took us across the border into British Columbia, and the whole day was awesome - stellar weather, fantastic scenery, with one of my favorite peeps. It doesn't get much better than that!
