Hiking the Heart Creek Trail in Winter

We went for a winter hike along the Heart Creek Trail near Canmore with some friends. It was a pretty winter day and the hike was great. The hike is not long and we easily made it to the end of the trail at the top of the valley. Although there is a waterfall at the top, it is not accessible and we couldn't see it. It seems like it might be possible to get to it later in the winter if the whole creek freezes. We might have to go back after a major cold snap to have a better look...

Simply Sunday: Family Portrait

Annual Phillips-Knobel Family Portrait We took a trip out on to the prairies east of Calgary today to create our own family portrait for this years Christmas Card. I didn't have a firm idea in mind other than I wanted to do something on the prairie, maybe making use of a big bale of hay, an old barn, or a grain bin. Something like that anyway. So we drove around to see what we could find. It was a fun time and although the kids were pretty goofy we managed to get a few useable portraits. It's much … Continue Reading ››
