With wide open days at this point in my life, it's time to invest hours on end exploring wide open spaces in the city, but far from the core of it. In the past I dined at The Ranche in Fish Creek Provincial Park and I biked a part of the Park back in 2009 but hiking here remained elusive until today. We had the map with us and picked a route to follow. The idea was to fill our day walking & talking, snacking & snapping shots. When all was said and done, we accomplished that while covering 15.5kms of trail.
There were paved paths & dirt trails.
.....and along the shores of the famous for fishing Bow River.
The dirt path section along the Bow River was beautiful.
We were able to get down to the river's edge.
