The result of a fun afternoon hike in Kananaskis my hubby and I did back in April. The peak in the foreground is Mt. Baldy, overlooking the amazing blue water of Barrier Lake. This is a great hike for beginners or parents with older kids (or experienced hikers who want to blaze through in a couple of hours or less). The only significant elevation change occurs shortly after you’ve hit the first lookout. While we encountered only three cyclists at this early date, Prairie View is apparently a popular mountain biking trek, so everyone has to share the trail during the peak season.
Thanks so much! I had a moment to check out your blog – excellent photography! 🙂
Thank you Sheryl! I love your pictures as well 🙂
Looks absolutely stunning! You clearly had the weather for it.
It was the perfect day for a hike – can’t believe it was that warm in April. And no snow on the trail – unheard of!
It is a breathtaking scene – we just sat there for the longest while, taking it in. 🙂
What a glorious day and such a wonderful view!
An amazing place, for sure!
Wow! What a shot and what a view!
A huge reward for a relatively short hike – it was such a great afternoon.
Love those kind of hikes!
Many thanks! It was an amazing place to visit!

One of my favourite trails. I like that you can make it short by going back the same way it longer by going down the other side and by the lake.
