rainy spring days - Prairie Mountain

After a 2-day rain storm throughout Calgary area and the world... 
(Giro cancelled their 19th stage yesterday due to snow, worldwide flooding), decided to hike Prairie Mountain than be on a road bike in the cool temps.

Trail was bare 2 days ago.
Skimo friend Michelle Roberts joined me on her first time venture up Prairie Mountain.

Cairn at the top. Super stiff winds (note flag!).
Short stop due to windchill factor

Thanks to Kahtoolas for the great traction.

Great place to be...
