Heart creek/Grotto Canyon

Sewe mense van verskilende nationalitiete het saam met ons gaan voetslaan, dit was ‘n lieflike son-skyn dag. Ons hond het haar rugsak met koffie gedra. Ons was eers Heart Creek toe, waar ons al in die somer was. Die bruggies en creek lyk so mooi met sneeu en almal se kleurvol uitrustings. Daar was nie te veel mense nie, ek dink net een ander klein toer-groep.Heart Creek _amp_ Grotto Mountain 20 Feb 05 001Seven people of different nationalities went hiking with us, it was a lovely sunshiny day. Our dog carried her backpack with coffee. We went first to Heart Creek where we have already been in the summer. The bridges and creek looked so beautiful with snow and everyone’s colorful outfits. There were not too many people, I think there was only one other small tour group.

Heart Creek, Kananaskis, Alberta
Elevation gain: 275’.

“The parking area for the Heart Creek Trail is at the Lac des Arcs turn-off from the Trans Canada Highway about 60 km west of the Calgary city limits. The Lac des Arcs turn-off is well marked. The hike is in a relatively narrow valley that follows Heart Creek upstream. There are high ridges on each side of Heart Creek and toward the end of the trail, the valley narrows into a canyon with a nice waterfall at the south end of the trail where the hike terminates. The mountain on your left (east) side of the trail is Heart Mountain, while the mountain on the west side of the trail is Mount Mc Gillivray with Pigeon Mountain the next peak to the west. Weather permitting, you will have excellent views of Heart Mountain and see the heart shape near the summit where the mountain got its name. The sources of Heart Creek are underground springs, melting snow and rain so the water is relatively pure in the upper reaches of Heart Creek. “ http://macdonald.typepad.comHeart Creek _amp_ Grotto Mountain 20 Feb 05 016
Daarna is ons weer Grotto Canyon toe, ons crampons het dit baie beter gemaak. Daar was nie te veel mense nie, ek dink net een ander klein toergroep. Ons het kos en wyn saam geneem en almal sommer daar in die canyon geëet, die wyn het baie lekker afgegaan teen die koue windjie wat daar deur kom. Nietemin moes mooi konsentreer met die terugkom slag. Almal het lekker moeg huis toe gegaan.
