Sentinel Creek Falls

October 18, 2014

Just like my last post, this is a continuation of the Pint Lake Trail from Highway 11.  As I passed through this region last month with a huge goal of Entry Creek (12-13 Km), this time I set that as a distant goal and aimed to explore the creeks that I passed on my journey there.


O.D Falls

I could never get enough of the David Thompson Country and its many trails and trail network.  Of course I realize that this was my main go-to for 2014, but this remote region gives me plenty to enjoy time and again.  On this day I would return to the Pinto Lake Trail, where I last attempted to make it to Entry Creek Falls.  Knowing that a 12-13 Kilometer hike is a bit much to do for one person in a day, I set this as my futuristic goal and for now focused on the waterfalls and the creeks I passed on my way there.

Elbow Falls

Another easy roadside visit, this time in the Bragg Creek, Kananaskis Country region.  Sadly this day was overcast with a very wet misting rain.  Also, this being my first time in the region, I regret not having a few shots of how this area looked before the 2013 floods.  As you may tell in some of these shots there has been severe damage brought on from the rush of water over a year ago.


Website re-design/updates

September 17, 2014

I've made some minor adjustments on the site again.  This time I've added the province as an interactive Google Map for waterfalls I've tagged across all of Alberta.  There is a small map off on the left hand side; however I've also included the same map (though larger) under the maps section.  I hope with this interactive map you are better able to browse the site for waterfalls in your area.

Another minor change; the recent videos has been bumped from the bottom of the page to the side bar (just below links to videos).  This was done to be more user friendly while looking for videos in relation to the hikes.

Enjoy the slightly changed and added features!

Another update for the website coming soon!  I'll be taking a break before my much anticipated return to the Rockies in late October.  Although during this time I've found some new artistic photographic talent that I'm excited to implement!  In late October, for the first time I will be exploring Photo Spheres / 360 Degree Panoramic photos.  I hope to put this to good use in providing more visual exploration of the waterfalls in the Rockies!

Cat Creek Falls

 
September 13, 2014

A very short day hike deep in Kananaskis Country; Cat Creek is found in Highwood region of K-Country.  My first warning is this area is closed in the winter (after September 30) and only opens in the spring/summer (June 15) every year.  With that said this area is still under mass repairs due to the June 2013 floods, Cat Creek included.  On this day I would pass a crew working on the (what once was) bridge over the creek.

Top 5 destination hikes in the Rockies

August 31, 2014

As I've been asked a few times now for my favorite or my "must see" destination hikes in the Rockies, I decided to put together a short list.  As I've surpassed 50 waterfalls and collected information on at least 60 of them here, I thought this might be a fair enough time to provide my assessment of the "best" trails thus far.

My runner-up is none other than Moonlight Falls and the Evan-Thomas Creek trail.  This is a contender as, for no better reason, the waterfall itself is a absolutely stunning waterfall to marvel at in the winter.  The contrasting colour of blue in the surrounding blanket of white snow; it's no wonder why it's a "must-climb" and talked about in ice climbing circles.
