My favorite scenery of my trip was when we got to explore these limestone formations. They are a part of the Ravenscrag Geological Formation, a government protected historical site.
A lot of women who made the climb just made a cursory look around then sat down as we only had a half an hour to look around. When we first arrived there were young kids sitting on top, but they disappeared as soon as our group came out and started climbing up.
We saw trails heading out all over the area. It was like these boulders were just randomly thrown around:
We were quite high up:
Just loved the little nooks and cubbyholes:
Guessing what the formations resembled is neat:
I can see where the local kids would have fun playing about these rocks!
You can see the well worn pathways leading everywhere:
While there was some carving of initials into the rocks, it was nice to see there was no graffiti spray painted anywhere. Love the walk throughs:
I wanted all day to explore here :-P
Well worn paths to every little opening:
Just so neat:
People were already starting to load the bus when we looked back:
These so reminded me of the hoodoos in Drumheller:
Mom wanted her photo taken on this interesting rock:
An arch formation was given the name La Roche Percee where the town got its name:
Early Indians had left petroglyphs which unfortunately had been obliterated by settlers carving their initials as they passed through which in turn were covered by modern people:
I had a great weekend, enjoying 210 minutes of hiking Saturday (although it was very cold and windy) and 235 minutes on a gorgeous Sunday with the coolness just right and a break from the wind :) Saturday's bridge club team game went okay, only 7 teams, but better than I expected after the regional had taken our club attendance well down (guess they were all bridged out and didn't feel like playing the week after)
Today is supposed to be our last warmest day so after directing my club game, I hope to wash windows -hoping my shoulder/arm/elbow will hold up!!
Have a Marvelous Monday!
