Write Up:
It had been a challenging August -- the skies most days were yellow- ish with smoke from the BC forest fires and the air quality index hovered from 5 to 10 or worse -- confining many of us to indoor pursuits. There was a bit of smoke this day -- the AQI was about 2. It was a cool Saturday morning of the Labour Day weekend. WE met on the Bowness side of the loop -- the cafe is easy to find and the parking lot close by (unlike Baker Park on the opposite bank of the Bow). We struck out at an easy pace, heading east to cross the 85th street bridge so that we could get the noisy part of the hike over with, then headed west through Baker Park, across the footbridge below Stoney Trail, then back through the gravelled trail amongst he trees. We hiked as one group (albeit stretched out) and reconvened at the trail junctions. Many people took a moment to personally thank me for posting an "EASY PACE" hike as they were experiencing or recovering from a medical condition and had not been out hiking much and missed the restorative benefits of being out in nature. Plus the missed the cameraderie of fellow CWHers! All in all it was an enjoyable hike on a long weekend without having to experience heavy highway traffic.
