Our second reason for choosing this destination for our walk was to see the profusion of Alberta Wild Roses we expected to be in bloom. On our earlier trips, we had seen paths lined with rose bushes and we visualized rose flowers in abundance. While there were roses, they came in patches, still beautiful but not a-plenty.
The mosquitoes, on the other hand, were in abundance and we found ourselves swatting, swiping, spraying and running from time to time. Deep Woods Off was our only respite.
