Calgarians Peggy & Grant Abbott, family & Friends will be camping…
“… in the beautiful Columbia Valley at Radium, a favourite spot. We will be joined by two of our adult children, my parents, and friends. After our day of hiking we will fire up the barbie, open some find Okanagan Wine, some local beers and re-live the great outdoors. Most likely wondering whose idea it was to hike so far and how we could get so lost.
Today is steak day, some nice Alberta Sirloins, new potatoes baked in foil with garden dill and butter, green beans baked in foil curtisy. A Greek salad of cucumber, tomatoes and peppers from a green house operation in Nanton where my parents live
Our Farmer’s Market, at Garrison Woods is the best in the city, and the Tomato Farm is in Nanton. We recently made a trip to the Okanagan and brought some delightful wines home to share with family and friends. Although not part of our Bbq, we will be enjoying Saskatoon muffins on our hike. The berries are picked by myself at the Saskatoon Farm just south of Calgary on Highway #2. An absolutely awesome place that serves up everything Saskatoon, including buffalo burgers!!! I know your mouth is watering already!! Well, we do hope to party on time but we have been known to underestimate the time it takes to hike the distance.”
