After spending two months living in the core of Montréal I couldn’t wait to get back on a trail. I was so antsy to get out amongst the peaks I made plans to go hike before my plane even touched down in Calgary midweek. My great friends Erik, Breanne, and Corey were all game to hit the peaks first thing Saturday morning. The date was set and trail selected.
(Disclaimer: I only brought my 70mm to 300mm lens, so be prepared for portrait oriented photos galore below.)
After polishing off our bagels on the side of the highway we hit the trail.
After hiking 45 minutes through the woods we reached the base of the ridge. Another hour up and the views started to reveal themselves under the morning light. The views were stupid beautiful, these photos don’t do the landscape justice.
Pocaterra Ridge is made up of four individual peaks, after eating a quick snack atop the first peak we hammered out the remaining ones. Then descended down back into the woods to make our way back to the car.
Get out there. Adventure awaits.
