Day Five in Canmore/Banff

It was -24ºC when I woke up, -19ºC when I went for a run, and then -2ºC out in Kananaskis where we did a hike.

The run featured some trails along the Bow River and a trot through downtown. Really nice views!

After lunch at Wendy’s we drove out to Kananaskis Country near Nakiska ski area and did the short hike up to Troll Falls. The falls were mostly frozen, but the neat thing about this one was that you could walk in behind the ice.

The water has carved out a cave-like area and we explored around there a bit before taking the long way back to the car across a wide meadow.

Scenic Drive

We took Hwy 40 to Hwy 742 to get back to Canmore. The 742 stretch was snow-covered and a bit more of an adventure than I would have expected given the conditions on 40. Still a nice way to end the day’s fun.
