Jumpingpound Loop

After a snowstorm pummelled the city of Calgary and a lot of the mountains on Thursday, getting down to the Highwood Pass didn't seem like a good hiking option.
Instead, I hiked the Jumpingpound Loop for the first time in the fall. The snow was a lot like this spring's trip, but with a lot more tree mess, and less flooding.

An aspen tree has fallen with the trunk split spirally.

Very cool breakage in the tree trunk.

We have to duck under some of the new hanging branches.

A few open spots have dried out already.
