Impressions of a ski tour down to Big Bend campsite on the Athabasca river.

lyrics

Down past the falls on a long, gentle glide
Through the trees and the white
Of the snow
In the fading winter sunlight

You can still see the path that we followed in the spring
Oh the joy that it did bring
To our hearts
On our journey down to Big Bend

As the night
Covers up the day
And the shadows lengthen
Across the snowy glades
Down the Athabasca river valley
Showing us the way
To point our ski tips
Drifting come-what-may
Down to Big Bend

Follow the trail
'cross the creek
Down the line

Leave the world we know behind
Getting lost in thoughts
the city makes so hard to find

In the dying light of the winter sun
we set off on our way
Back to Edmonton again
To our home
A long long way from Big Bend

As the night
Covers up the day
And the shadows lengthen
Across the snowy glades
Down the Athabasca river valley
Showing us the way
To point our ski tips
Drifting come-what-may
Down to Big Bend
