Calgary Daytrips: A Morning in K-Country
Summer, winter, spring or fall, this is the place to ride, four wheel, run, hike, ski doo, ski, boat and more.
A mere 35 minute drive from our place on the west side of Calgary, we chose a couple of the easier more laid back picnic type spots to do some exploring. I mean Zacharie is 3 so a 1k hike around a water fall and a 30 minute bushwack looking for our first ever geocache are a perfect way to spend the morning.
20km west of Bragg Creek, this picnic area features dozens of picturesque picnic sites (some with firepits) along a smooth paved path along the Elbow River. An easy hike of a few hundred metres gives you many different views of the rushing Elbow Falls. We spent 40 minutes or so wandering and gandering.
Allen Bill Pond
By the time we arrived, just before 9a, there were already half a dozen chairs spread around the pond with Fathers and daughters and sons tossing a line in looking for one of 3000 rainbow trout that are stocked in the pond each June. Without our gear, we decided to try for our first ever geocache and .. .. were successful!
It was a great morning, we left the home before 7 and were back by just past 10.
