Taking into consideration all the Parks Canada restrictions throughout the whole area where we ventured into today, we were still able to cover loads of ground making a gigantic fat loop and keeping our event at a D7 rating. We were out there long enough that we encountered two snow squalls, numerous times of intermittent snow flurries, sunshine, bitter cold, blue sky, wind gusts and enough warmth. The mix of freshly fallen snow and larch trees still in the prime of their life created dreamy scenery. The photography opportunities were plentiful and splendid and we took full advantage of that. For some of us this was the third Saturday in a row for prime larch viewing, how fortunate we are. Thank you Tanya for helping me with the driving and also welcome to the Calgary Outdoor Club. I hope to share time in the mountains again with you and the rest of our group. Thank you all for sharing in making this a pleasure filled day. Andra
