I wondered right up until the last minute would today happen! Roads reported red & windchill showed double digits beginning with a 2. We waited, we questioned, we put a call in, then a positive confirmation was made that we are going to Peter Lougheed Provincial Park to play. We hit the highway and then veered off to where life begins, down Highway 40. It was a slow go, our driver stated it was like driving on a sheet of ice. As we drove that road, the sky cleared and the scenery became outstanding. We made it to Elk Pass Parking Lot! Whew!

we gathered here for a few minutes to admire the view before carrying on
view as we snowshoed along the dam
At the edge of the dam we headed down a short steep hill towards the Everest Expedition Trail.
We meandered through meadows, along paths, crossed roads.
Hours had passed and the shadows were getting long.
It was time to find our way back to where we strapped on our snowshoes at the start so we could unstrap them, stow them, then hop into our warm and cozy ride for home.
OMG, how can I not be green with envy, with sensational vistas like this! ❤️❤️❤️ReplyDelete
