Ah, life is good! Last weekend I went on another grand adventure. Jacqui, Debbie, Cathy and I joined the Castle Crown Wilderness Coalition on a hike to Burl Likes via the mid-Kootneys pass. Once again, I loved it. Another check off my bucket list! The fall colours were magnificent. The Larches had turned to a beautiful golden colour, the huckleberries a tempting bright red. The temperature was perfect, and the wind was idle. I met some very interesting new people, all in my age and interest group. During the day we only encountered a few other hikers. After a few of the peaceful hikes in the forestry reserve, I never want to go to places such Banff or Kananaskis and face those crowded,
well-worn trails. Nope, I can find heaven just a short drive from home. Who knew???
