Maligne Canyon, Jasper
Deep canyon walk in the mountains, but the most remarkable thing is this was my first trip away since pre-pandemic days. So grateful to explore, see friends, be introduced to new terrain, and for the black bear sightings.

Summit Lake, Waterton
First mountain walk of the year, and first walk in this part of Waterton since the 2017 Kenow wildfire. Summit Lake was iced in and the snow too deep to get close to it. The continental divide and the U.S.A. were in sight. The poor burnt trees.
