I recently went on an adventure with two of my sisters and some of my nieces and nephews.

When I say adventure, I truly mean an adventure.

They all came out for the day last week Wednesday.

Yup, that day.

With the 100km/h wind gusts.

Our first attempt at a walk was Emerald Lake.

The snow was mostly melted and it would’ve been a nice walk for the kids to enjoy.

However, when we arrived, the winds started gusting and some rock climbers very politely let us know that some rocks were falling that day.

While my sisters and I appreciated that warning, some of the kids weren’t as thrilled to hear that was a possibility.

After attempting to forge on while having a permanent lean thanks to the wind, we decided it would be best to turn back and find a shelter to eat our lunch.

We made our way to Flumerfelt Park.

Once we had finished lunch, we decided to start walking Miner’s Path.

This walk was very enjoyable.

The trees kept us out of the wind and the path wasn’t too icy.

Just before the bridge that crosses the creek, we ran into eight deer.

This was a big highlight for the kids.

Okay, let’s be real, it was a big highlight for us adults too!

We continued on towards the falls and then enjoyed some time taking pictures there.

We then headed back towards the Flumerfelt.

Sure enough, once we reached the bridge, our deer friends were still enjoying themselves.

After another brief pause, we made our way back to the vehicles.

TO finish off our day, I brought everyone to the candy store.

All the kids (and myself) picked out some candy to enjoy.

Some selected lollipops; others chose MikeandIkes and Chewy Nerds.

All in all it was a successful day of enjoying the mountains.

Even though we almost got blown to Pincher Creek on our first attempt.
