Bull Creek Hills II
Three years ago Dinah and I hiked up Bull Creek Hills in December following the route described in the Kananaskis Trail Guide. This time we returned to take in a more direct route. Despite the bitter cold in the morning, the trip was enjoyable given the great views under clear skies.
Strangely, small areas like this one were hit with heavy frost
Feathered frost blankets plants
Highway is still in sight as we climb.
Holycross Mountain is on the left and Mount Head is on the right
Summit is on the right
Not much snow as we hiked up the ridge...
...except for the odd, hard snow drift
Just minutes from the summit. Holycross Mountain in the background
On the summit
To the east is nothing but prairie
We followed the ridge back down. In the background on the left are Miller Creek Hills.
