What are the chances?
What are the chances that there would be two campsites available side by side at the Lake Louise Tent-Only Campground. When a friend and I decided we would like to camp and hike for a few days, we went onto the Parks Canada Website and there were two spots available, side by side, for the three nights we wanted. In a matter of seconds they were ours!
What are the chances that we would arrive at a full Moraine Lake Parking Lot only to be greeted by the two parking lot attendees who directed us to park in made up non official spots. In a matter of minutes we were ready to hit the trail up to Larch Valley.
What are the chances it would be so very quiet along the trail mid morning.
It was WOW when we recached the opening!
The trail was clear and dry yet with more than enough snow in the meadow to build a snowman.
We began the hike back with the intention to check out a trail that leads off to the right.
Before that though, there was still lots to admire.
When a group of hikers came along and spotted the marmot they yelled out "look at the beaver"!

We found our way down to the creek and followed along for a little while.
This section was so beautiful!
It's the clearest mountain creek I ever did see!
hang out time
Today played out in our favour. It was good to be able to set up camp then have dinner then relax without having to deal with non-user-friendly weather. In our world today I am working at living a life, finding enjoyment, being open to change, accepting what needs to be. It's nice when "what are the chances" are positive bonuses! But are they always???
