I flew into Calgary Friday night, where my friend Heidi (who had just flown in from San Diego) was waiting, and we loading our carry-ones full of warm clothing into a rental car and headed into the mountains. A late night of reunions and meeting new people, then we woke up to a spectacular day, sunny and not too cold. Three of us decided to head out for a run, then do some sightseeing in Canmore before prepping for the party.
The view I woke up to from our condo in Canmore.
Ready for a run in the snow!
Corinne lent me these cool spiky things to put on the bottom of my shoes for traction on the ice. They worked perfectly!
Sightseeing in Canmore.
Sightseeing in Banff - still sunny but pretty cold!
The adventure's not quite over... My next post will be about my trip home... Spoiler alert: so far it looks like my 1.5 hour flight last night will be at least a 24-hour adventure!
