{Moose Mountain Summit}

 On Monday we decided to head out for a hike since the rest of the week wasn't looking so great weather wise - and it hasn't been great.
I always leave the hike route up to Justin and after some research we decided to stick with Bragg Creek as there were a lot of recent bear sighting on the other trails we had hoped to do.
(We also bought bear spray to carry with us now just to be safe and Cruz always wears a bear bell)
We headed out to Justin's {beloved} Moose Mountain. We didn't actually think we'd make it to the summit because it looked {and was!} really far away!
Cruz was so good and wore her listening ears so we let her off leash and she stayed close. 
She was so happy!
Walking up into the clouds!
It was so beautiful at the top in the alpine! We were higher than any trees can grow. 
Justin carried Delainey the whole time!
Lunch on top of the world!
 Decided it was nap time on the way down!
It was such a beautiful hike - it was a total of 14km. We made it to the summit but not to the top of the fire lookout. It looked like a scramble to get up there and that's not something we wanted to do with Delainey or Cruz. Plus we were tired. :) 
We stopped at Alan Bill pond on the way home so Delainey would have a swim and we could dip our tired feet! We also stopped for a slurpee!

Beautiful hike! I always want to do more hiking but never sure where to go. I hate heights, narrow trails and a few times we've got stuck on trails when I basically freeze in fear.
You look awesome, so tanned :-)

Looks like a good hike!! Love that you need bear spray and bells! I'd still love to see some bears, but safely!! The views were worth the hard work getting there!!

This place looks gorgeous! The bear thing would freak me out, but I am glad to hear that Cruz had her listening ears on that day! :)
