STASH:

Sherlock Holmes bag from CreativeMoJo, auntiejo’s Etsy shop!
I was right about which story – The Adventure of Three Garridebs, which is in The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes.

It was worth a wound — it was worth many wounds — to know the depth of loyalty and love which lay behind that cold mask. The clear, hard eyes were dimmed for a moment, and the firm lips were shaking. For the one and only time I caught a glimpse of a great heart as well as of a great brain. All my years of humble but single-minded service culminated in that moment of revelation.

Lovely bag from Sewn By Lindsay, bought at Knit City.

Fibernymph Dyeworks Bedazzled Base in “Soft Kitty” will be my “October” socks.

Books:

The series I’m so into right now starts with Written in Red, written by Anne Bishop.

Mountains:

We hiked to the Plain of Six Glaciers Teahouse, which is listed as Moderate: 5.3 km one way; 365 m elevation gain; 4 hour round trip, and then added on a side trip to Abbot Pass Viewpoint: 1.5 km one way; 50 m elevation gain.

As the name suggests, the hike to the Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House offers incredible views of the glaciers and mountains that surround Lake Louise. Built by the Canadian Pacific Railway between 1924 and 1927, this tea house was originally constructed to house mountaineers en route to the popular objectives of Mts. Victoria and Lefroy. Hikers today can enjoy a wonderful menu of fresh lemonade, tea, pie, scones and more.
