Along my route this afternoon on numerous occasions I made the choice to take the path less traveled. The easy pathway was the paved one. The one I took criss crossed the paved one at odd angles. It was single track with lots of mud and ice. Yee haw! It was slow and hard but was a lot of fun.
Our family decided to walk to the nearest park and to see what kind of cool pictures we could get (and to loosen up the legs after a hard race in the morning). We all had cameras. And we all stopped randomly to take photos as we saw them in our minds eye. Besides bumping into each other with the sudden stops we had a great time. Since no one was watching us we felt less inhibited. Here is what I took.
We might even do this again next weekend since we will have another race to loosen up after and we have cameras to play with.
So lucky to live so close to the Rocky Mountains. At the last minute on Saturday we drove 45 minutes to go on this hike just outside Canmore, Alberta. Beautiful valley, called Cougar Creek, and great weather to boot. And the kids don’t complain nearly as much as they used to.
This creek bed seemed endless. We walked a few kilometers and then had to turn around when it started getting dark.
