Snowshoe trek.

The weather has been absolutely beautiful these past few days, with above freezing temperatures and lots of bright sun. It won’t last, but we’ll take it while we can get it! 🙂

On Friday, my hubby and I made a day trip out to the mountains to enjoy the scenery and do a little snowshoeing. The Elkwood Trail in Kananaskis Country was our first destination (we later did a short trek near Lower Kananaskis Lake as well). This well-marked track runs through a large campground in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, and encompasses an interpretive loop around Marl Lake. Stands of white spruce and lodgepole pine predominate, and we had to imagine what the trail will look like once the wildflowers awaken from their slumber. But, in the meantime, there were plenty of other interesting sights to enjoy….
