Ingrid has hiked and snowshoed with me for seven years, so it is with reluctance that I and the rest of my hiking group bid her goodbye as she and Rob return to England. Rob has joined us on a few hikes and participated in some of our social activities, so we have come to know him too. Storm Mountain Lodge in Banff National Park has been the scene of a luncheon or two and several times we have stopped there for coffee and tea after a hike or snowshoe, thus it was a favoured place to have a farewell lunch for these two treasured friends. Fourteen people enjoyed a wonderful lunch and socializing. We are pleased that Ingrid and Rob are keen on returning to the Rockies for holidays, so we look forward to seeing them again.
