Singin' In the Rain

The weather has been conspiring against me these last few weeks - I guess spring was only fooling. It shouldn't hold me back but does for a couple of reasons:

  1. I am a wuss - I like to be warm and dry and outside when the weather is fair
  2. I don't have the clothing or equipment I should have to be able to hike comfortably and safely in inclement weather
Today, though, I decided to brave the rain and try a short, easy wander that I had heard about. Also I was babysitting my 18 month old grandson so his abilities had to be taken into consideration. After layering up, we headed out to Fish Creek Provincial Park in Calgary to tackle the Mallard Point Loop

Tackle ended up being an optimistic word. Instead I meandered about 100 metres up the trail while Grandbaby splashed and toddled and enjoyed. By the time we got to the point of almost not being able to see the parking lot any more, he was soaked through and it was time to go home. Still an enjoyable bit of time and I will for sure be taking him back to actually finish the loop when the weather clears up. What we saw of it was lovely.
