Spring is Finally Here!

Today I just couldn’t resist posting a few photos of Spring. Even though they don’t qualify as an adventure, I wanted to share my Spring excitement with you. Be sure to check back on Friday for the usual weekly adventure.

The crocuses are blooming and the lilacs are budding. I’m so excited to see the green emerging in the landscape. I know that the abundance of summer produce is about to begin. I always get overly excited to go to Farmer’s Market again because everything tastes better when it is freshly picked. In addition to that, the snow in the mountains is melting and in a few weeks we will be able to start hiking some of the mountains closer to the valley.

Miner’s Peak

Miner's Peak

It was a phenomenal day in the mountains just west of Calgary in a town called Canmore. Canmore is situated in a corridor created by two mountain ranges running along either side. Overlooking the town are two peaks that are connected by a ridge, Ha Ling Peak and Miner’s Peak.  If you get started in the morning it is pretty easy to do both in a day.

Mountain Mexican Adventure

We went out for dinner last night at Pescado Blanco, Mountain Mexican Cuisine in Whitefish, Montana.  If you ever come to ski Whitefish Mountain Resort (Big Mountain), you should check it out.  I almost always get the fish special, (pictured above) because they are just so good.  Tyler’s favorite is the Super Burrito.  One time we got the burrito for take-out and it weighed in at 4 pounds!

Glacier National Park – Apgar Winter Hike

In the winter you start by hiking a couple of miles in to reach the trailhead for Apgar Lookout. This makes it a bit of an endeavor in the winter, so today we just went for a few miles, more just to get out than anything else. I love tromping through the glittering snow with the crisp air and the sound of water in the background.

Winter Sunset

We didn’t get out to the mountains this week, (insert a sigh).  We have been fortunate enough to get out to the mountains most every week for a couple of years now and I have gotten terribly spoiled.

Sculptures in Ice

Lake McDonald Sunset

Sculptures in Ice

We caught this gorgeous sunset on the way back from a hike on Going to the Sun road in Glacier National Park.  The day couldn’t have been anymore spectacular.  Perfect blue skies and sunshine are an elusive combination in the Flathead Valley during the winter.  You can count yourself lucky if it coincides with your day off.
