It's April 17th today and it feels more winter-like than spring-like! It's not a weekend for great mountain scenery and even if it was, I'm not so sure I could handle strapping on my snowshoes again! I am so over that! Still needing my outdoorsy fix, I wandered off to Nose Creek this time instead of Nose Hill. On this spring day, I bundled up in winter pants, winter boots, winter shell, winter hat and winter gloves then found a good spot to call my trailhead for the day and that's where I began my loooonnnnng urban hike!
While being an urban hike, it felt so far removed from anything urban! I wasn't the only one feeling Nosey today! I felt I was being watched as I checked out rock formations. It wasn't obvious at first what was watching me, as it blended in with the scenery. Then a little movement caught my eye!
I'm sure the duck is confused! It seems so wrong to see duck foot prints in snow.
I picked a return route that gave me that wilderness feeling in the middle of the city!
Yet, I still felt like I was being watched! The eyes on these things gave the impression they were being nosey and watching me as I hiked by them!
I can't say urban hiking is the next best thing to mountain hiking, but I can say, the 10km of exercise in fresh air with wonderful scenery sure felt good!
