The rest of the story

I think it was a Saskatchewan thing- the guy on the radio who told the stories behind the story..and always finished by saying "and that, is the rest of the story".
Well this post has nothing to do with a story behind a story, or Saskatchewan, or the radio. It is just the continuation of the rest of the Jasper weekend.
Saturday D took H-dog fir a run the morning while I just relaxed. My legs were a bit pooched from the run on Friday so I was happy to chill. At about 10 I needed to move so I got ready to go to the pool. Shortly after D came back and was keen to join me for a short swim and a stretch in the hot tub. We made it just in time to catch the last 1/2 hr of lane swim, but it felt so good to just stretch out. 
After the swim we went for a latte and then got ready to ski. We headed out to the same trail we skied last time we were here, hoping there would still be good snow. The snow was great and except for some wind, it was a perfect ski day. We did and hour out and just under that back. We got to go down some sweet down hill which was really fun! 
Next up was a big dinner, with our friends Jason and Twila from Hinton. Despite the huge meal I was still hungry! We then went to see "Slumdog Millionaire" which was a fantastic movie. After the movie we hit up Mac's for some snacks to try and fill the bottomless pit that is my stomach. 
Sunday morning started slow, and we decided to spend some extra time lounging. We debated what to do, finally deciding to take Harley for a hike. We did a great trail that goes up over the town and loops back. It was just over an hour I think it was just right for all of us. By then I was ravenous so we had a huge breakfast feast at Smitty's before hitting the road home. 
It was a stunningly wonderful weekend. I can't wait to go back in a month!

What an absolutely stellar time you had! I love how you said your legs were "pooched!" H-Dog should be very proud of himself for pooching your legs! Hahahahahahahahahaha!!

Thanks for the pics. :) :)

And -- it's good to hear you at least attempted to fill the bottomless pit! Hahahaha -- I KNOW that feeling. :) :) :)
