Tour Highlights: Coral Creek Canyon Hike on May 6, 2017
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.
We lucked out this Saturday with our first warm and dry day in a while. The first 100 metres of the trail didn’t look promising with water running down the middle of the trail but fortunately the rest of the way was dry. The views at this time of the year are great along the Cline River Canyon with the ice formations popular with ice climbers only slowly melting away.
It was a wonderful start to the hiking season as we were able enjoy this beautiful day and enjoy some great conversation.
