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.
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.
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.
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.
These photos were taken of the mountains surrounding Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park. I get mountain fever just seeing these photos. The sunset glow on Mount Vaught and Stanton is breathtaking. Can’t you just picture yourself on top of that peak. Maybe soon, we don’t have a final list of summits for the summer yet.
