Today five of my Ruthie & Friends Hiking Group hiked up Ribbon Creek Trail to the first picnic table. That is always a great spot to stop and chat and if you are over eighty years old it is probably a good place to turn around. It was a lovely warm day and we had a super time. We even had a short stop to search for the two grouse that flew into the trees and to have a short chat with a young fellow who had hiked up the North Fork of Ribbon Creek and found the memorial cairn that is related to the plane crashes and the people who died during a tragedy just prior to the 1988 Olympics. For the story about this tragedy see my book My Valley the Kananaskis page 166 – 168 (1997 Rocky Mountain Books) and the picture of the memorial cairn.
