After last night’s double serving of homemade crepes topped with pan-fried apples and whipping cream, we headed out for a long walk this morning. The sky was quite overcast when we set out, but we carried our cameras and along with our hopes for more appealing skies to emerge ASAP. Our hopes were realized. So while we were out for about two hours, we stopped so many times to take pictures that we only covered about 6 km (4 miles). Fortunately, there was a fair bit of elevation lost and then re-gained, so we got a decent bit of exercise. These are some of Mrs. GeoKs’ better results.
A few other tidbits:
Near the end of our walk, we spotted the local elk herd. But with most of them in the trees and very bright sunlight to contend with, we didn’t spend much time trying to photograph the few that were out in the open.
Over the past couple weeks, a good 10 – 15 cm (4 – 6 inches) of snow has fallen in Canmore. So Mrs. GeoK wore a pair of Yaktrax Pro and Mr. GeoK wore a pair of Microspikes. Not once during our walk did Mrs. GeoK think I’m sure glad I wore the Yaktrax today. And there were many times she was thinking I sure wish I’d worn Microspikes today. The snow covered a base layer of ice, and she slipped many times. So we are standing pat on our earlier recommendation of Microspikes.
