Kananaskis Country

 For the full Harvest Moon we perched at Highwood Pass, the highest drive able pass in Canada at 2,203 meters (about seven thousand feet.) The morning dawned misty and threatening rain but we went for a little walk to read interpretative signs and stretch our legs.
 We'd had one of our unforgettable paddles on Upper Kananaskis Lake (excuse my back again.) The little island of golden aspen was so beautiful against the sheer peaks and small glaciers in the saddle. We were able to paddle to a lovely little hike to a falls on a feeder creek. The day before we'd hiked along a series of lakes. During our stay we saw more moose, a coyote, a wolf, a solo baby deer...

 We spent two days doing errands in Canmore, a beautiful but wealthy city in the Bow Valley, just south of Banff. The road out to the Kananaskis Valley is surprisingly rough but what I wanted to show here are all Michael's repairs... our bikes are whole again, the ladder is put away and we have a new bike rack that is much more convenient... still a bit of duct tape on the lights, but so much for aesthetics...
Speaking of which. How can you go wrong on that in such glorious country?
