Don’t let that perfect blue sky fool you. We took a ridiculously cold (and quick!) snowshoe around Wedge Pond in Kananaskis Country on December 23. The snow was blowing from the tops of the peaks and the humidity in the air was literally (and I mean literally) breathtaking. Given the assault by Jack Frost, we weren’t even halfheartedly debating whether or not to cut the trip short…and then my hubby saw two wolves on another part of the trail. They were skittish and promptly vanished, but we suddenly got to worrying a bit (especially when the tree branches were cracking just so), and besides, there was hot chocolate and Irish Cream waiting at home.
stunning photo, sheryl
Thanks so much! I can’t get enough of the scenery in the Rockies!
Well, I hope the wolves got in out of the cold too, and maybe got some hot chocolate.
LOL, I bet they weren’t too impressed with the weather, either!
And what an adventure, wolves and all.
Hope you enjoyed the hot chocolate and irish cream
Thank you! Yes, that hot chocolate and Irish Cream were very welcome! 🙂
It is an incredible place, that’s for sure!
Gorgeous scenery but I would rather be indoors with the hot chocolate!
It was crazy cold…staying indoors would have been the better option!
Ahhh! Hot chocolate and irish Cream waiting at home. Well said.
A happy ending…. 🙂
Wind chills of 8 zillion below. The prospect of getting beaned by falling branches. Wolves. . . . You made the right decision!
I totally agree! 🙂
Phew! That was quite an outing, but what magnificent scenery.
it does look amazing on the photo, but imagine hot chocolate was just too tempting with that icy cold outside!
Yes, absolutely! 🙂
Fabulous scenery and such a beautiful photo! Good decision to cut the walk short! 🙂
Home sweet home… 🙂
Beautiful photo and your description wonderful, especially the bit about the skittish wolves!
An exciting (very cold) trip, for sure!
