Winter in October

I'm really hoping it wasn't.... but this past Friday may have been the final hike of the season.

Petyo Lake - a bit different look than last weekend!

What a great view of Bow Lake!

Somebody had everything in her pack except
the kitchen sink! And her lunch!

Just a little bit of snow!

Awwww! A snowbear!

Sheila and I made a quick trip up the Icefields Parkway to Bow Summit. Not surprisingly, with the trailhead at almost 2100 metres, we encountered a plethora of the white stuff. The day was on-and-off clouds and sun, and I don't know if the thermometer actually made it into double digits... but the views were spectacular and we had a great afternoon outside.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there might be at least one more opportunity to wear my hiking boots, before ski boots become the footwear of choice. Maybe this weekend?

Happy Thanksgiving to everybody!
