My work-out / hiking buddy and I spent a spectacular weekend at a charming, rustic place called Beaver foot Lodge and did a stunning hike in the area to Wapta Falls. We also did Emerald Lake (aborted due to rain), and a little jaunt around Lake Minnewanka just outside Banff.

|Beautiful Fall colours ... on our way up to Wapta Falls|
|Paw prints ... we think (and hope!) dog|
|Lots of rain in the area made for a muddy hike|
|The spectacular Wapta Falls ... so worth the climb - just breathtaking|
|Photoshop couldn't even replicate these colours ... nature at its full glory best|
|We made it! Took a lot of time to sit at the top and just take it in|
|Lots of downed trees|
|Made for a great aerobic workout|
|Officially a hiker :)|

Such a great weekend. I am loving the lifestyle of getting out and being active, at the same time discovering the stunning scenery in this country.
Tomorrow I am hoping to update on weight loss and fitness goals.
