Reflections in Rawson Lake



What a guy!

We planned to hike this morning but woke up to a fogged in valley, very unusual for Canmore! So we had a leisurely breakfast and when the fog started to lift we headed to Upper Kananaskis Lake. After a picnic lunch with a stunning view, we hiked to Rawson Lake and then climbed up to the ridge above the lake. A steeper walk than we remember but Ann and Rook were troopers and we were rewarded with the spectacular view when we reached the top. A mountain goat, ground squirrels and coyote were also enjoying the view.
