When we left the farmers' market on Saturday we headed out to the Wentworth ski area to take the cable car to the top of the ski mountain to see the fall colours. Sounded like a great idea and it was.
At 815 vertical feet high it is not really a very high mountain in Colorado/Alberta terms, but it is high enough to provide a great view of the surrounding area from the chair lift. Especially on the return ride to the bottom.
So we purchased a ticket and off we went.
We got on the chair and up we went. We noticed a few people walking down the mountain. What a good idea, we should do that sometime.
About halfway up the ride we noticed something
We got off at the top and followed the other folks heading off to walk down the mountain. You will notice behind me that we have a choice of two trails.
The Chickadee trail I mentioned earlier. It is rated as easy and it was. But long. Halfway down we crossed Explosion.
The people you see near the top were on their hands and knees (or hands and bums) crawling down the hill. It was very steep. As for us we really enjoyed our 1 hour hike to the bottom of the mountain. An unplanned but very enjoyable walk.
Next post: Thanksgiving dinner and our picnic at Polly Cove.
