Canadian Mount Everest Expedition Trail

This ill-named hike (it's named after a Canadian Mount Everest climbing team but I find it confusing) is short and sweet. Located right between the Upper and Lower Kananaskis lakes, it even has some decent (slightly treed) views from the top. The real reason to do it is either with little kids just getting started in hiking or to take pictures of flowers - there are many along the route.

Beehive, The (Lake Agnes, Mirror Lake)

On Friday, September 25 2010 Hanneke and I did a nice hiking circuit in Lake Louise. Our route took us to Lake Agnes, over The Beehive and down to the Plain of Six Glaciers trail back to the parking lot. The Beehive is not a tough scramble by any means, but it does involve some elevation gain and consequently some very sublime views.
