20140216: Lower Junkyards (Canmore)

Was supposed to be a beautiful +2C today. It was, until the wind started, clouds came out, and it started to snow!

The Junkyards, at the Grassi Lakes recreation area just outside Canmore. So-called because of the bits and pieces of ice scattered about.

Walking along the Transalta road to reach the falls, instead of using the lower or higher trails as we’d done Dec 28 and Jan 3 respectively.

Cool little overhang. Opening was not big enough to fit my head into, but was big enough for the camera!

Great day to practice some skills and technique in a low avalanche hazard area close to town. Others had the same idea it seems; lots of groups here today. Got in some footwork and practiced climbing with one tool. Another fun day on ice.
