This afternoon I zipped over to Canmore to hang out with my cousin Tammy before she ventured out on the next portion of her first aid/wilderness/guide training in the Canmore area. It was the most GORGEOUS drive EVER! Brilliantly sunny and the most VIBRANT of neon greens of leaves on all the trees after three solid days of rain. And, of course, a fantabulous backdrop of snow covered Rocky Mountains. Sigh. So, so, so happy to be home in Canada, and still so in love with Alberta.
Tammy and the rest of the crew doing her course are staying at the Alpine Club of Canada – hostel/cabins/place of awesomeness.
We headed downtown for a few last minute items for Tammy’s TWENTY FOUR DAY hike. YIKKKKES! She took me to Switching Gear Sports Consignment. How fun! Who knew such a place existed! I not only found the fabo rain jacket above, I also got an Under Armour hoodie and some other lil spring-y like zip hoodie. Then I quickly paid before I could find more goodies.
On my way home – still in the brilliant sun at 7:30 pm I headed for a rather ominous looking raincloud, but a quick pass through and was back in the sunshine by the time I hit home!
A perfect Sunday!
