we left lake louise and went to johnson’s canyon for a great winter hike.  the lower falls were frozen over and all we could see was the water flowing out beneath the ice.

hiking up to the upper falls we found a bench buried so deeply in the snow that it was the perfect size for me.

because it was cooler hiking through the trees i wore my new owl hat to keep my ears from freezing

i thought you might like to see a closeup of the lace edging and crocheted features.

across the canyon was a brave tree clinging to a tiny ledge and reaching for the sky.  of course i had to take a picture!
