Although I’ve walked up this little mountain before, It was my trip up on January 11/2002 when I got the camera out and took some pictures for this website.
Barrier Mountain is located in the frontal range and so is dry most of the year. If you live near Calgary and need to get out for a day and want some nice views then this is a good outing.
On January 11/2002 it was sunny and the temperature was mild. The wind was also not very strong that day so it was ideal conditions. I took my new MD Walkman along for the hike and enjoyed some tunes on my master mix disk as well as those of a musician that I know.
At the top of the mountain is the forestry shack and a few antennae as well as a picnic table and a fire pit. The shack is not staffed most of the year so you’ll probably have the summit to your self. Enjoy!
The barrier between success is not something which exists in the real world: it is composed purely and simply of doubts about ability.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
1882-1945, Thirty-second President of the USA
It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have never been before… to test your limits… to break through barriers. And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
1914-1977, French-born American Novelist, Dancer
I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.
