Even though the days here are warmer than they have been, the nights are still quite cold. I was cocooned in my sleeping bag and did not emerge until 9:30 AM October 23rd 2018. There is something to no time constraints or alarms. Your body awakens when it is ready.
I had the most leisurely breakfast and finished including packing up the tent by noon! Wow! Time moves along when you are really doing very little.
Mount Kidd has a nice, short trail walk to an island in the middle of the Kananaskis River. That was the only plan today besides soaking up the sun, reading and taking a drive up to Highwood Pass. Such an action packed itinerary!
The walk was really pretty and pretty easy. I met no one. The Kananaskis River looked particularly beautiful this morning.
Afterwards, I drove up to Highwood Pass, always a favourite of mine. I usually cycle up, but, the relaxation tour demanded otherwise this time.
On the way down I stopped at one of my favourite views of the Opal Mountain Range from King’s Creek.
The rest of the day was spent in leisure, reading and enjoying the 14 C weather. Life is good.
