Whether intentional or accidental, I'm glad this month's photo blogging challenge theme doesn't specify "holiday" season. Why? Because many our magic moments in December related to the winter season, not Christmas. Add in a couple special Christmas memories and narrowing it down to just five photos is hard!
One good thing about 2020? Bike pathways were not closed!
The trail to Taylor Lake is entirely below treeline, which means it’s relatively lower risk for avalanche. It’s on the Park’s Canada list of difficult snowshoe/winter hiking trails in the Lake Louise area, with a warning of avalanche danger beyond reaching the lake. With over 600 meters elevation gain, this is a relatively challenging winter hike/snowshoe destination.
An easy, half-day winter hike/snowshoe to a narrow mountain lake. Expect to share the trail with skiers, snowshoe hares and spruce grouse.
We are grateful for time spent outdoors - for the physical and mental benefits of time spent in nature. And after months of preparing every meal at home, a new kitchen appliance is cause to celebrate!
