A little bit about me and a lot about the things we do.

Fur Babies and Snowy Mountains

A good mother loves to babysit her grandchildren and will even be willing to look after her grand pets when they are as cute and cuddly as these.
After almost a week with these faces, Ron came to defur me and off we went to the mountains.  On our way to Radium, we stopped at Lake Louise to find a good place to ski.
Close by we found lots of snow and the perfect trails through the woods.


It was a wonderful day.  The heavy snow on the trees were gorgeous and then it opened up to a frozen lake.


We finished a nice trek around the loop and then headed to Radium.  It never gets old going into Radium.
We checked into our chalet.  It's a quaint little motel with a wonderful view.

The next morning we headed back to Nipika.  The conditions were perfect this time and the trails were beautiful.
Later that day we went to the hot springs and soaked all our muscles.
That evening Ron returned to do laps in the "cool" pool.
The next morning we left Radium but the locals got the right away.
On our way back we stopped at Johnson Canyon to go for a little walk.  It was cold and the wind was blowing but it was sheltered enough to enjoy the spectacular sights.





There is nothing quite like enjoying the mountains in the winter but of course there was a little reminder that spring is coming even if that reminder is in a plant.
