Rockin' the Rockies

Map of the Kananaskis Hiking Trails

The best thing about Calgary is its proximity to the Rocky Mountains.  This past Sunday, I went on a hiking excursion with a group of very fit 50 year olds in the Kananaskis Provincial Park.    There are a plethora of trails to choose from, but we decided to hike the circumference of Upper Kananaskis Lake, an easy 6 hour hike.  Upon speaking to the park ranger, we were informed that a portion of the hike had possible avalanche warnings so we decided to avoid that section and thus our hike only ended up being 4 hours ("only", haha).  It was an amazing group/day/experience with the company being well matched and the weather bang on (ie. no rain!).  Luckily, I brought my trusty iPhone with me to treat you to some of the breath-taking views.  Enjoy!
