Good Morning Everyone!!!
I hope you are a morning person!
Meeting at Wild Flour you'll have the opportunity to sip on a coffee as we fill out waivers and give a rundown of the day. Once we are adequately fueled by caffeine we'll carpool a short distance to the trailhead and begin our adventure. Hiking along the trail we'll learn about the surrounding area, find out why I feel blessed to call the Bow Valley home, and take amazing photos!!
You'll be back to Wild Flour by 12pm leaving you plenty of opportunity for another adventure and more exploring beautiful Banff!
