BCP484: Wind Ridge
Sunday evening I received an email from BVPete saying some of the local mountain goat crew was planning on heading out on Tuesday to try for this cap. When I got to work on Monday morning I checked my calendar and was pleased to see I didn't have anything scheduled so I quickly blocked off my day and booked it off.
I met BVPete at the trailhead around 07:45 and shortly thereafter j2d2, RedRouge and Sleepy Hollow arrived and we set off down the trail. I was keeping up on the flat with a bit of effort but once we started into the steep sections I struggled to keep up. It was a fairly decent slog to get to the top, but the views made it all worthwhile. Seeing Canmore to the right, the Wind Valley to the left and the views down the Bow Valley in both directions.
No problem locating the cap up at the top and then we took the opportunity to explore the ridge further before dropping down into the valley and walking our way out. This was one of the best hikes I've done, and it was made all the better by getting to do it with some caching and hiking legends. Thanks guys!
