Trip Report

I still wasn't feeling 100% on the last weekend of February 2016. I decided that the forecast was too 'iffy' to try anything too lofty or remote on Sunday, February 28th so I woke up late and once again drove past Okotoks, through Black Diamond and Turner Valley and continued on to Kananaskis Country. Unlike last week though, this time I followed the Sheep River along highway 546 instead of the Highwood along highway 40. The conditions were remarkably spring-like, especially compared to when I did Foran Grade and Windy Point Ridge in late February 2014. Instead of snow and -23, I was presented with practically no snow and 5 degrees!
