Pete and Ruby took a hike yesterday, July 7, up Ptarmigan Cirque in the Highwood Pass of Alberta's Kananaskis Range, not too far from Calgary.
Lots of snow still there.
Ruby (left) and Pete enjoy the view and the chance to cool down. I was wearing a t-shirt, shorts and running shoes and was still hot!!
Below, on the way higher with Pete and Ruby.
Flowers were blooming where the snow had disappeared.
Ruby looks back the way we came. This is probably about 8,200 feet above sea level and a popular, short hike.
