December 29, 2015 to January 1, 2016
Jenn, Shawn, and James drove to Canmore after Christmas to spend some time in the mountains. We stayed with Uncle Bruce in Canmore for a few days and to welcome in 2016.
Our original plan was to go on some decent snowshoe trips. However, although the forecast was for mild temperatures, the actual air temperature hardly got above -20°.
On December 30, we went with Andrew and his dad Ivan to Warspite Lake: shawnbenbow.ca/warspite2015
. After snowshoeing/skiing for a couple of hours, we got back in from the cold and had dinner together with Uncle Bruce.
On December 31, Andrew came with us to Lake Louise. This was James' first (of what will be many) visits there: shawnbenbow.ca/lakelouise2015
We celebrated New Year 2016 in Canmore, and went home on January 1.
Although the weather didn't cooperate, it was still very nice to get out and spend some time in the cool, crisp, mountain air. We were all sad that we had to return home!
