New Year’s Eve Tradition

Shae and I went to the Natural Bridge, in Yoho National Park for a New Year’s Eve Day spent in the mountains last year (2015). It was only fitting, seeing both our schedules worked together that we go there again. Same place, but a little different this time. We were able to go fully underneath the Natural Bridge and walk right up to it, it was amazing. We stopped at Emerald Lake, and Marble Canyon. Hiked around a bit and played in the snow as well. It was a day well spent for our last day of 2016. Here are some photos of the day :

Winter in YYC

It’s been cold here in YYC. Like unbelievably cold. Christmas/Boxing Day week it’s been decently warm, so Joel and I have been trying to get the dogs out as much as possible. Considering come next week it’s supposed to plummet back down to -30 with the wind chill, which is no Bueno for me and the dogs! We have some natural areas close to our house that we get to enjoy. We try to run the dogs so their little toes don’t get so cold so fast. They wrecked their booties climbing up Table Mountain a little while back, and we haven’t bought them new ones (city baby’s haha). Here are some photos :

Weaselhead Natural Area, Calgary

Weaselhead Natural Area : This park is one of my favorites. I found it a couple years ago when I was looking for parks in and around Calgary that didn’t require me to drive to far. It’s located South Calgary, just off of Crowchild and borders the west end of the Glenmore Reservoir. Easy to access and offers a wide variety of walking/hiking/biking trails. Because it is so close to the City outskirts, bears tend to roam around here once in awhile, along with other wildlife. Since it has been atleast -30 with the wind chill for the last week, it’s been kind of hard getting outside. But, Nicole and I bundled up with our snow gear and headed out for a couple hours to enjoy some fresh air. The sun was going down, and it was going down quick. It was a BEAUTIFUL sunset. Here are some photos I got :
