High Rockies Trail

I recently hiked a section of the High Rockies Trail from Black Prince to Pocaterra Dam on the Lower Kananaskis Lake. The suspension bridge is absolutely amazing and the arnica and aster flowers are much larger than I usually see. Maybe there is more moisture in the ground. In 1919 there was a forest fire in the Upper Kananaskis Lake area, and whether it extended to the Smith-Dorrien Valley I am not sure, however, the ground that was disturbed by the trail builders exposes evidence of a previous forest fire. Check it all out.
