Bellevue Hill May 12, 2017

Friday – Drove down to Pincher Creek to try Victoria Peak but looked like still has too much snow – add in some new rain/snow showers at 8 am so we moved onto Waterton. Bellevue was dry until summit and then rained hard on us all the way down. Went up the RH Nugara fault […]

Prairie Bluff, East Castle April 22, 2017

Plan C after finding 5 to 20 cm of new snow I like Dave’s summary from FB: This was a “plan C” and ended up being a great half-day wander after the twin irritations of encountering a woman driving in reverse at full speed on the center lane of MacLeod Trail south as we left town(she […]

Cascade July 8, 2016

Needed rehab/exercise so thought I would go up until it started raining and made it to summit. A few changes since previous times as there has been so much traffic. Section between first summit and traverse is messed up with lots of trails and even the traverse has several partial trails. Very good dry trail(as […]
