It has been a slow melt this spring to say the least. We are probably a month behind as far as the snow disappearing from the upper elevations which means hiking is limited to lower trails and they are not always the most scenic.
But finally I was able to do one of my favourite ridge hikes here at Kicking Horse Resort up to Terminator peak. And the views are always stunning.
We have had a lot of rain and cooler weather throughout the spring and even fresh snow not long ago at the top of the mountains.
But having said that, I will enjoy this compared to last year when we had a heat dome in June with temperatures unheard of and then followed by forest fires throughout the province. That meant smoke and that is not fun.
This is just fine. Video is from my hike a few days ago to Terminator peak.
