Hogarth Lake - December 28, 2011 - Snowshoeing

It's been pretty warm and humid (for Alberta anyway) and it seemed like a nice time to revisit the cold, chilly climbs at the other end of the calendar. You know, to remind us why we look forward to summer so much.

I present Hogarth Lake last December.

Fullerton Loop - August 7, 2011 (from the archives)

Elbow Valley - Fullerton Loop - The Particulars: Trailhead is located at the East side of the Allen Bill Pond parking lot (off Highway 66). Take the path under the overpass along the river to the gate. Loop is about 6.1km including the hike back to the trailhead (loop actually starts a good 1km into the hike). Trailhead elevation is about 1430m. High point is about 1585m. Loop takes about 1.5-2 hrs depending on conditions. 

The first hike I took after having the boys. Fullerton Loop is my old standby, my go to trail when the legs are weak, but I just gotta get out there and see the views:

That's Moose Mountain as seen from Fullerton Loop. I haven't been back yet, but one day....
