Last Sunday we went out to Kananaskis Country to explore the many bridges on the Galatea Creek trail. It was a good day with great weather and few bugs.

Thanks to all the hikers for joining us on this month’s outing. I hope you all enjoyed the hike, the conversations and the company today. Big thanks again to Bernice and Paul for trucking the majority of the crew there and back! Continue reading
