I have lived in Calgary for going on 9 years now and during that time I like to think I had the place pretty well explored. I know of a lot of beautiful nooks and crannies nestled in the prairies, foothills and Rockies, perfect for landscape photography. I have traveled around British Columbia and Alberta for most of my life, leaving very few places unexplored. So with this in mind, I am more than a bit embarrassed to admit that I had never been to Upper Kananaskis Lake until this month.
What a stunning location.
Actually, I'm going to say that again a little louder. What a STUNNING LOCATION
It was so stunning, after I learned of the lake I reserved a campsite near by for Thanksgiving weekend and then dragged my husband, mother in law, friend and his dog to go look at it. I clown carred my mother in law into the tiny back seat of my truck with a stranger and a dog and as far as I'm aware, I'm still in the good books. It's that beautiful. We just stood on the shore and breathed it all in. If you are in the area, I recommend doing the same, it's good for you.
