Mt. Yamnuska

imageimageThis was a hike that we had considered doing earlier this year while I was 8 months pregnant. We ended up doing another hike in Kananaskis that day instead. After doing them both, I think Mt. Yamnuska is much more appropriate for a woman in her third trimester, although I wasn’t the one carrying the baby for this hike.image imageWe had been invited to a Halloween party in Bow Valley Provincial Park, so we decided to make a day trip out of it. We rented a car, did some grocery shopping and headed for the mountains. It was the last day of the year without snow, and we wanted to make the most of it.image imageIt turned out to be a beautiful, warm day for a hike. We only wished we had gone a few weeks earlier to see the golden aspen leaves while they were still on the trees. The yellow path still made for a lovely trek. imageimageWe didn’t quite make it to the top. There was a bit of scrambling at the top, which probably wouldn’t have been a good idea with the baby carrier anyway, but the sun was setting, the party was starting, and the baby was getting hungry. She was a good sport for most of the hike (sleeping), but she whined a lot of the return trip. So we came back to the car, gave her a snack, and changed into our costumes. image
