It's been many, many months since I put together an official hiking event. I wanted to share this Canada Day with others who are as passionate as me about being out there doing what we love in a place we are proud to call our home and native land! I picked our celebration to take place up on Guinns Pass & Mount Kidd Outlier. An effort would be necessary to get there, the views would be grand and the summit space is large enough for us to spread out. It all came together nicely!

There was still a good amount of snow at Guinns Pass.
We opted to capture our celebration photos at Guinns Pass.
The weather was perfect as was the backdrop and we could safely all be together in one spot.
We donned our colors and proudly displayed our flags.
true patriot love
We continued ascending following along the edge to where we could witness Ribbon Lake below.

It's always nice when you can take a few minuntes to relax on a sofa!

We began the trek back after a nice long lunch break.
That's Mount Kidd as the backdrop.

What a great day we shared in this beautiful place we get to call our home.
glorious and free
