West Bragg Creek

Yesterday afternoon a white mist blanketed our yard and by evening the trees and shrubs were once again covered in hoar frost which shone a pale pink in this morning’s sunrise.  Just another example of Calgary’s capricious weather, since yesterday morning the sun shone, the sky was a deep blue and it was warm enough for us to shed our jackets and hike the West Bragg Creek trails in our T-shirts.

We met at Cinnamon Spoon in Bragg Creek for coffee and breakfast before driving through to West Bragg Creek.  Although we had  our snow shoes with us the paths were well trodden and the snow not deep enough to warrant using them.  We spent a couple of hours hiking the beautiful Crystal Line and Sundog Loops, where we met Mark cross country skiing in the opposite direction, then,  as we were all keen to try out our snow shoes,   Tracy, Barbara and I headed into the forest near the parking area where we made the most of the deeper snow lying under the trees

A well spent morning!
