Ten people came out to hike the Snow Valley Trail in Edmonton’s White Ravine. The day started out rather cold and overcast. As we walked by the Snow Valley ski hill, we noticed that Edmonton has a lot of hardy skiers.
A highlight was seeing again the trio of lush spruce trees decorated for Christmas. This seems to be an annual tradition. A big thank-you to whoever is responsible.
After a short stop at the Alfred Savage Centre, the hike continued for a loop around the Fort Edmonton Park and back to Alfred Savage for lunch.
Gradually the skies cleared and the day warmed up. What a treat it was to have the sun on our faces when the days are so short.
Thanks to John for leading the hike. You can see more photos on Flickr.
