Canmore

Grassi Lakes, Canmore, Alberta

As with my last post, aboutย Grotto Canyon, Grassi Lakes is a hike that I love to do at least once per summer. As I mentioned in a lot of my posts I love waterfallsย and Grassi lakes has a wonderful waterfall and other bodies of water to photograph.

IMG_3135Grassi Lakes is a hike I love because you can take one trail to the lake and another one back to the parking lot. I get bored of seeing the same things over and over, so it’s nice to change it up.

My mom and I prefer to take the harder trail to the lake (this is where you get a great view of the waterfall) and the easier trail to go back to the car. This hike took us a few hours total, mostly because I stop a LOT to take photos thus slowing us down…hahaha.ย IMG_3104

The reason I love this hike is because the water looks so magical and there are endless opportunities for photos. I can’t wait to go back this summer with my new lens. I took these photos in 2015 so my camera skills were not as great as they are now, but I still like them!

Cold War Bunker!

Duringย summer 2016 my mom, my friend, and of course myself went for a hike that we had found about through some research. As I mentioned in my post about waterfallsย I prefer hikes where we have a goal in mind (i.e. making it to a waterfall or in this case … a Cold War Bunker!). I don’t like to just wander aimlessly in the woods, I like to know that I am going places.
