    Fantastic day and hike with a fantastic group of people and that's no bull.
    While we may not have achieved the summit our route up was filled with enough challenges and excitement to keep things interesting and enjoyable for all who attended. Special thanks to Doug for organizing and going way above and beyond on the trail, to Andy for his humor and support over the crossing and of course to Owen for getting all his passengers safely there and back. I tend not to hike very often with groups but this is truly one of the best group of people I have ever had the pleasure of hiking with. Look forward to seeing you all again

    Does anyone want to carpool from the north end of Calgary? I'm near Beddington Trail and Stoney Trail. I can provide a ride to the LRT station or if we have a full load we could go straight to Kananaskis.
