The Colonel’s Cabin (WWII Internment Camp) & Johnson’s Lake

One of myΒ first adventures, since finishing school, was on Saturday, April 22, 2017. My mom and IΒ went to The Colonel’s Cabin in Kananaskis and then out to Johnson Lake for a small hike.

Colonel’s Cabin (“History Loop”):

Our first part was a quick little walk through the ‘History Loop’. It is very short, but fascinating. The whole trail is only 0.3km in total, but on their sign they do recommend spending at least a half an hour that way you have time to read all of the signs. I believe, normally, in the summer there are brochures available to guide you through the site as there are numbered posts throughout, but the place where you would get one from was empty. We are quite early in the spring, so hopefully they will restock them!
