Back in April of last year was the first time I ever ventured up onto Wasootch Ridge. I truly enjoyed that visit and knew I would definitely hit that high point again. I went back the following June but had to quickly abort my mission just before the summit when the weather did an abrupt turn-around. A mental note was made to keep this place in mind for springtime so I have been watching the weather and the snow conditions over the past few weeks waiting for the ideal day to wander that way and that day was today.
It was an outstanding morning weatherwise.
Wasootch Ridge offers many opportunities to practice being artistic.
I'm always trying to see things in a different way.
I look for unique sights too!
framing options are plentiful
After taking some time playing photographer, I was ready to make my way to the summit and that star marks where I need to get to. In between there and where I am standing are still a few ups and downs to tackle.
I made it!

This area of Kananaskis is pretty much just out my back door. I am there before you know it and home before you know it yet in between it feels like I am a world away. It feels good to be getting good elevation gain hikes under my belt. While this was a shorter day, I thoroughly enjoyed it and felt the fullfillment I was after. I am ready now for another big day in all ways, distance, elevation and hours.
