Entering Kananaskis!!
We took off in the morning, packing up a lunch, munchies, and drinks and drove from Calgary to the splendid Kananaskis Country which was recommended by a co-worker!  Though the trip was about 1.5 hrs and we had a delay when we stopped to make sure of an individuals situation and saw she got off on her way safely, we quickly continued and enjoyed the beauty approaching!

We noticed the leaves beginning to change on a variety of trees; also, the many pines trees that surrounded the area, and the streams, picnic areas, trails, falls, and camping grounds along the way.  Our mission was to get to Lower and Upper Kananaskis Lakes and see the vivid crystal clear blue coloured lakes which are fed daily by glacier run-off!!

At first when we arrived at Lower Kananaskis Lake we quickly took a peak at the lake but then quickly returned to our trunk to get out the food filled cooler and found a shady picnic area to munch down lunch.

  Furbee relaxed in the bush tied to a pine tree and no sooner I had finished my sandwich did I break out the camera and take pictures of the fungus within the forest and other interesting plants.

We all gathered up the food, empty baggies, straws, etc. we used and put them safely away so to not interest any Black Bears from walking into the picnic area for 'human food' even the sent on garbage can bring them in ...

We then went to Lower Lake and I even wlaked in with Furbee; no I didn't go for a dip but our second oldest did ... very very cold, i was content in just walking in to my knees while securely holding Furbee as she swam in and out for a branch the girls would throw out for her to swim after.

Boy it was beautiful here, still we wanted to make 'head-way' to Upper Kananaskis Lake and an hour was long enough since we were being attacked by bubble bees, go figure.

  Bubble bees rarely land on us, always going for flowers.  At one time I had one on my shoulder and another on my towel.  i had no help from Dan unless he was absolutely sure he was safe as when younger he was bitten by bees and shares no interest in having the stinging experience return to him.

We all gathered up our towels, and put on our runners for the walk back and headed in the car, safe from Bubble Bees and headed to Upper Kananaskis Lake ...

We'll certainly take you, this is a spot I wanted the group to go, we ran out of time because they wanted horseback riding etc ... but to see the many places, similar to your area, you have to drive and not just stay in Banff
