Up the Stairs that Said "Climb Me"
Its funny how when you live in a place for a while you get into patterns and don't always know how much there is nearby to hike. I've walked passed the stairs beside the power plant probably over 100 times and never decided to go up - that is until yesterday - just because the baby was happy in her carrier and the weather was perfect - cool, but sunny with not a cloud in the sky.
So up, up, up we went accross a field and then up a steep hill until we got to the Rundle Forebay, just a bit before the Nordic Center and then I walked all the way to Quarry Lake. The best part was that there were tonnes of Indian Paintbrush and a few lovely western wood lilies.
Then we finished with a lovely hike down Canmore Creek, back to the Bow River.
So lots of new trails and a much better understanding of local geograhy.
