Fairly Mild
Simply Selles by David Selles

Pass Herald Reporter
This winter has been fairly mild and it’s allowed me to enjoy a lot of the outdoors so far.

This past Friday, I had a friend come visit from Lethbridge for the day and we decided to hike the trail to Allison Creek Falls.

This was my first time hiking to the falls in the winter and it was beautiful.

The way the water moved under the frozen parts of the falls was amazing.

It’s one of my favourite little hikes to do in the Pass and for the longest time I didn’t even know it existed.

I love walking through the trees on the way to the falls as I’m just immersed in the beauty of nature.

We hung out near the falls for a while before walking back towards Chinook Lake.

We were the only ones there and it was incredibly peaceful to just sit on a bench by the lake staring at the mountains and frozen water below.

Once we were finished hiking I followed him back into Lethbridge to visit my parents for the rest of the weekend.

I would classify the drive in as peaceful…except for one moment right near the beginning.

Heading east just past Bellevue there was a plough heading the opposite direction.

Before I could blink there was a loud crack.

Sure enough a rock smoked my windshield.

I pulled off to the side of the road to assess the damage and since there was no glass inside my Jeep and the crack was within reason, I finished the drive to Lethbridge and booked an appointment to get it fixed.

I made the trek back out to the Pass on Monday with a new windshield and I can happily say no rocks have hit this one, yet.

I’ll see how long that lasts.
