When the going gets somewhat sketchy, I go to where it is never sketchy, Nose Hill Environmental Park which is just a hop, skip and a jump from my front door. I am still working at getting my nerves back from last weekend's scare so wasn't feeling quite up to aiming for the highway. 180 Minutes hiking around this Park was quite satifying on a morning when the windchill blasted at -28C. This was as sketchy as it got!
I wanted to be amongst lots of snow and I found it.
It was winter white, untouched, a crispy layer on top and fluffy puffy underneath.
This is what it took to stay warm from the cold and protected from the windchill.
There were slopes to ascend with deep snow yet no worries of avalanche activity.
Afer making my angel, I thought of the angel who received her wings on Friday and how the impressions from her 55 years will be ever lasting. To all those who were touched by this angel, may Holly's memories bring smiles and your thoughts of her hugs bring comfort & warmth.
I'm thankful Nose Hill Park is close to my home. I was fine with driving there and it was a boost to my confidence to make it there and back with no worries.
