In July, I went hiking in Kananaskis Country with my friends.
The scenery was beautiful with large rock faces and trees in the valleys, seemingly clinging to nothing on the rock.
Even though we weren’t super high up in the sky, clean white snow was still around in patches. Thankfully, it wasn’t too cold as most of Alberta was pretty much into its summer by the end of July.
About 3/4 of the way, there was a lake with more mountains away in the distance.
The view from the top!
A clear trail marks the best way through the mountains on this long, but beautiful hike.
Near the beginning of the trail, a stream runs though. There were actually several streams. After over 6 hours of hiking, we were anxious to find the parking lot again on the way back, but this is what we kept seeing instead!
After the hike, we had dinner in Canmore before returning to Calgary. I look forward to more hikes again next year after Calgary’s 9-month winter is done for another year again!
