Hiking Chester Lake (Kananaskis, AB)

The complete hike was 15.3 km in length, gained 612 meters (2008 feet) in elevation and it took me a little over 4 hours.

Buller Pass (or Passes) Loop is a loop consisting of the less-used North Buller Pass and the more popular (South) Buller Pass in Spray Valley Provincial Park, Kananaskis Country. According to GPS, the loop was about 16km in length and we gained 825 meters in altitude, getting up to 2,470m (8,103ft) in elevation.

This was another hike I had to redo after another “misadventure” a year ago.

The Rocky Mountaineer Experience

Chateau Lake Louise at Night | Andrew D. Forbes

About a month ago, I hopped on a bus to meet my family in Jasper. The reason for this trip was to take part in the Rocky Mountaineer voyage, a rather luxurious train/bus ride that really highlights the beauty of the Rockies and the BC Interior.
