Needing a day to get out and breathe in the crisp cool air, a day to venture out with my camera, a day to recharge my batteries and top up the soul with Mother Nature goodness.
My daughter and I ventured off to see if the wildlife gate was still open to Cat Creek Falls and to see if we could catch a glimpse of her frozen beauty. Camera gear packed, coffee in our mugs, breakfast in our bellies and snack in the bag we headed out. Greeted at the gate by the mountain goats who were busy licking salt off the road we were excited to discover that the closure date is December 1st (not November 15th as I had thought possible).
Taking note of the number of trucks along the side of the road we could see it was indeed hunting season. We’d certainly be sticking to our plan, a hike in and out, try to stay dry and take photos. Mission accomplished.
