Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park Dog Daze

Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park Dog Daze

 

It was my lucky day! I was off to the unique park that everyone has been barking about in dog walking circles, Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park.

The drive down the ravine overlooking the entire north shore of the Bow River had my tongue hanging with anticipation. I could hardly refrain from jumping out of my furry skin in excitement especially when I saw a doe jumping over a fence. There were people to meet, dogs to greet, children’s faces to lick and 25 km of paved walking paths to explore and leave my telltale calling card wherever allowed: leg lifts only, not the other kind, it is a park after all! Being kept on a tight leash was all I could bear. Lead on. Up Tiger Lily Loop and down Glenbow Trail, past the Corrals, through the CPR Crossing, around Bow River Loop and back across the tracks. Another train! I would not want to be off leash with those monsters careening through the land. My ears detected a sign of spring, Richardson Ground Squirrel, and it was a good thing I was contained or I would have made mud stew out of their hole sweet hole. Up Yodel and return by Glenbow Trail. Phew! So many different trails had me in a daze, and, after that last steep climb, I deserved a biscuit, or six. I was exhausted sniffing every canine, smiling at the unfortunate dog-less and trying to withhold friendly smacks from small children. They are delicious to lick but parents like me to keep my space.

Dogs and dog walkers love Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park. Enjoy the upcoming season of dog walking and other park activities. Keep your loveable mutts on leash, and the park, the trains, the wildlife and all of the visitors thank you.
