Lower Kananaskis Lake Trail

Once again I had a mostly clean slate for Monday and Tuesday this week, so drove to Peter Lougheed Provincial Park and parked at Canyon day use and hiked Lower Lake Trail to the little peninsular below Wm. Watson Lodge (for Alberta handicapped people and seniors) where there is an amazing view of mountains and Lower Kananaskis Lake. Unfortunately I forgot my lunch in my cooler and having started out on this hour’s hike at 1:00 p.m. I only stayed sitting on the memorial bench for 15 minutes before heading back. After reaching my van I drove to the top of the day use area and hauled out my lawn chair and ate my lunch and read the Canadian Alpine Journal. There is an awesome view from here. Sometime after 6:00 p.m. I drove over to Canyon Campground and got a campsite. Then I walked Kananaskis Canyon Trail before settling into writing up my journal and reading the CAJ. The twin flowers and bunchberry dogwood flowers were prolific on the forest floor along the Lower Lake Trail.
