Last Friday we had a little extra time in the afternoon before meeting my husband’s family for a picnic dinner. The mountains, trees and higher elevation were calling! We were hesitant when it was so smokey in the Calgary area that it might be more extreme in the mountains but we took a chance. It was very smokey but the mountains still looked beautiful thru the haze. With limited time we chose Grassi Lakes Trail for our hike right near Canmore. It always feels amazing to spend time in nature and it was the perfect outing that afternoon for us! Turned out to be a really great birthday for my love I’d say. The forest, waterfall, lakes and mountains are beautiful!!
