The second hike in our private monthly hiking series took us on the classic Siffleur Falls hike followed by a detour up on the benches along the Siffleur River to a viewpoint overlooking the North Saskatchewan River, the Kootenay Plains and the main range of the Rockies.
We have the pleasure of running a private monthly hiking series for a group of ladies this summer. The first hike of the season took us along the Cline River Canyon and Coral Creek Canyon on an easy to moderate 7 km hike.
The smoke from earlier in the week had cleared, making it a great day for the July guided hike to Siffleur Falls. The skies were lightly overcast, perfect for some pictures of the canyon along the way.
This trail is one of the best place in David Thompson Country to start the hiking season. The snow is gone from the valley, yet ice features are still visible in the canyons along the way. Flowers are starting to pop up along the trail and we even came across bighorn sheep grazing in the sun above the Coral Creek canyon, near our lunch spot.
On your last adventure, how much fun did you have looking at the bugs you walked past? Or did you notice the that a tree looks likes a triangle and a bridge looks like a rainbow? These are all observations that kids make if you let them enjoy the journey.
This past Saturday was the first hike in the Women in the Woods series. What better way to start the season than a hike to Siffleur Falls in the Kootenay Plains.
