So close to home

This area contains the foothills of the Rockie Mountains. There are many campsites, hiking, biking and horse trails. It takes about 1 hour to drive here from our place in Calgary. This allows us to go for a short drive and hike whenever we want.

Nihahi Ridge

This hike is a 45 minute drive from our house..... Very nice hike. Too bad we got caught in a thunderstorm while at the top..... made for a loooong trip down. This is from the base of the first summit.

    You brought back nice memories of a very pretty area we briefly visited. It would have been nice, to have had a lot more time to see the sights that you did. Gorgeous photos!

    Thanks for your congratulations¡ I am really hoping to go to Canada, but by the moment it is a bit expensive for me. I suppose I could do this travel in two or three years.
