[Update July 12 2013]
Many areas are now opening in Kananaskis thanks to an incredible effort by many. Many trails still remain closed, however. Please visit the Kananaskis Trails report page for updates.
On Sunday, June 16 2013 we celebrated Hanneke's birthday and Father's Day with a nice family hike around the Upper Kananaskis Lake. The best way to do this hike (IMHO) is from the Interlakes parking lot in a clockwise direction. This puts the 'boring' section from Interlakes to the Upper Lake parking lot behind you earlier in the day when you're still fresh.
On Saturday, June 15, 2013 I took my family up King Creek Ridge for a pleasant hike in beautiful spring weather. We followed a good trail right from the parking lot and had no issues other than the tiny moderate scrambling step just before the true summit of the ridge which Hanneke didn't bother with and Niko didn't really appreciate (but he did it!!).
A Grand Adventure!
The canoe trip for 2011 is shaping up to be one of the best we’ve ever done and I’m trying to ensure it is THE best we’ve ever done.
We tried Mount Lawrence Grassi on November 11 but we were turned around by high wind and very cold temperatures at the top. This time Sean, Taylor and I managed to get to the summit. There are no major difficulties on this moderate scramble - there is a good trail up the spine and to the summit.
