For Thanksgiving Cherie, Beth, Cam and I headed out to Waterton to meet up with my Aussie buddies (Sally and Karla) that I met on my riding trip! The first day we hiked almost 14 km to get to Upper Rowe Lake. The hike was fairly moderate until the last 25 min where it was a steep uphill climb in about half a foot of snow! It was interesting to see the gradual change in the scenery as we progressed in altitude... It was amazingly beautiful and we really enjoyed the day.

For Thanksgiving Monday we did a shorter hike that took us up to Summit Lake. We were a little worried as this area is known for bear sightings, but we had our bear spray handy and didn't end up seeing any bears (thank goodness!) Rex and Charger took some time both days to play in the water and enjoy the hike as well!
Not your typical thanksgiving, but a great way to spend two days!
