Burstall Pass and beyond

A day to remember with Sheila Churchill and Caroline Mackie. It was foggy when we left Canmore but by the time we reached Burstall Pass carpark the clouds had lifted and it was a bluebird day. After cross the raging torrent at the Robertson turnoff we scooted up fast to Burstall Pass where we enjoyed our delicious lunches, sat in the sun and contemplated a route up a ridge. Before long we were up on the ridge - felt like we were on top of the world with great views Mount Sir Douglas, the Royals, Assigniboine. Far below the green meadows of the Spray Creek sparkled in the sunlight. Flowers everywhere. We even managed to cross back over the chocolate raging torrent without getting our feet too wet. Back in Canmore in time for supper.
