Day Hike at Yamnuska

Day Hike at Yamnuska

Looking into the Bow Valley from Yamnuska

One afternoon when the weather couldn’t decide if it was going to be nice or stormy I decided to get in the car and take a drive towards Bannf National Park. Outside the town of Canmore there is a hiking/rock climbing spot called Yamnuska.

I decided to scramble to the first part of the all day hike. The view was pretty nice and the abundance of cloud added some drama for pictures.

Most impressive though was all the wild flowers growing in the meadows and forest floor.

This will be a place I will be revisiting for sure.
