Mount Allan - Centenial Track
Mount Allan from my back deck that has been calling to me all spring.
I have a love hate relationship with this blog. The above photos Marg up on the ridge after the steep climb. Then her eyes, that I had followed up the mountain and over the ridge.
Then our picture of a ptarmigan
This is a spot the marmot photo
This is Marg on the summit with some weird weather robot doodah - we were not impressed with the weather but you know what they say in this part of the world - wait five minutes and it will change so the next few photos are of the clearning. Later on in the day when we were leaving the ridge we heard a peel of thunder. It began to pour with rain and we wondered how the young trail runners with only shorts and teeshirts survived. The answer was OK as they passed us running down and we were happy to know they did not end up as statistics.
It was a fantastic day of varied weather, and amazing scenery. I love our backyard.
I was born in Scotland and hiked up mountains in India, Oman, New Zealand, Australia and found home with my scottish husband in the Canadian Rockies. My children are free spirits and professional skiers - they love mountains too. I have survived nearly 20 Canadian winters. Where did the time go?
