A month ago the plan for today was put in place. The friend who I met in Grade Primary and who I would be sharing the trail with is a recent retiree. We are both realizing that life in retirement is busy and full, well that's because we like it like that and it is what you make it. Today was the day that fit in for us both so off we went, hitting a trail almost out her back door and aiming for the Banff Springs Hotel archway to reach the beginning of the Spray River Loop Trail.
A couple from The Netherlands came along and we had a lengthy lovely chat with them.
They captured our photo and we reciprocated.
We came upon a back country campground that I had no idea existed.
We reached the second bridge to cross over to the Spray River West side.
This was truly an enjoyable day and the hours seemed to zip by.
I look forward to sharing more time together after the new year settles down.
Thank you for today!
We covered just short of 16kms.
This was the Spray River Loop route we completed.
