This is the first of half day, mid-week outings that I plan to lead throughout the winter. All will be in and around Calgary, will be easy to moderate in difficulty, and will go ahead with deep snow or not! If snow is lacking, please bring your ice grips for the bottoms of your boots and we'll head out to enjoy the incredible nature and and around Calgary.
NOTE: FOR THIS OUTING WE WILL MEET AT THE WEASEHEAD NATURAL AREA PARKING LOT LOCATED AT 6634 - 37 ST SW. PLEASE LOOK FOR WHITE BMW SUV BELONGING TO TRIP LEADER CINDY. WE WILL BEGIN OUR OUTING DIRECTLY FROM THIS PARKING LOT, HEADING INTO THE WEASELHEAD NATURAL AREA AT 9AM. PLEASE PLAN TO ARRIVE AT 8:45 SO YOU HAVE TIME TO CHECK IN, ASSEMBLE YOUR GEAR, SUIT UP AND BE READY TO HEAD OUT TOGETHER AT 9 AM.
IF WE ARE LUCKY, WE'LL ENJOY A SERENE OFF-PATH TREK THROUGH A BEAUTIFUL, LOCAL WILDERNESS AREA FULL OF BIRDS, WILDLIFE AND STUNNING VINGETTES OF NATURE. I THINK WE'LL BE LUCKY!!
