Chickakoo Lake

It was my birthday yesterday. Nick and I were wondering whether to go out for lunch or go for a walk at Chickakoo Lake. It was a lovely fresh November day here so we opted for a walk. I'm glad we did. Chickakoo Lake is a natural area about 20 minutes drive west from St. Albert. 

We arrived just after 10am and we were the only people in the parking lot. On Nov 11 we had a dusting of snow but the air was mild and the colours of the landscape were stunning. 

Bright blue sky and yellow grass. There's lots of hills on the walk so we had a good lung stretcher. The trails wind their way through aspen forests, rolling parkland and four small lakes.

That evening Amanda and Nick prepared a delicious meal. Roast bison stuffed with peppers, spinach and cheese, creamy cheese baked onions, salad with olive dressing and a yummy lemon almond cake. It was a wonderful day.
