Elk Island hikes on Family Day

 It is Family Day in Alberta, and today happened to be (arguably) the most beautiful day of the season with bright blue skies and very mild temperatures.
I needed to get my snowshoeing fix and made an afternoon solo trip out to Elk Island National Park. The snow conditions were perfect on the Hayburger Trail; meanwhile (unlike previous visits) Astotin Lake only had an inch of snow cover and did not require snowshoes. It's a different experience every time.
