A grand place for a short hike and/or picnic in Calgary, Alberta, Canada
An advantage of convalescence is the opportunity to take advantage of different opportunities which might normally be passed by for more esoteric adventures. Such is the case on this day when the drive from Bowness, in Northwest Calgary, delivers me to Elliston Park in the southwest quadrant of ...

Snagmore Trail in Kananaskis Country west of Bragg Creek may be the final snowshoe of the season if this early Spring weather holds near Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  Barely enough snow to justify wearing snowshoes.  Loving the sun and warm weather.

Story
Tagline
Blog Author, Hiking, Photography
Introduction
I am a father and grandfather enjoying a lifelong passion for exploring the wilderness. This blog contains personal journals for several of my missions from 2005 to present. The previous 45 years, prior to embracing digital photography, are missing. I do not consider myself a writer but I have been told I can tell a story. I also have a lifelong passion for photography. To you, my pictures show tiny portions of spectacular vistas. To me they represent fabulous memories. If you choose to share my experiences, you are welcome to contact me for additional information or advice. My blog is not even remotely intended to be a hiking guide. Although I do most of my hiking solo I give thanks to my wonderful hiking partners, including my son, Bill, who has shared adventures with me for more than 25 years. I am truly blessed.
