Alberta snapshot: Chester Lake.


I completely understand why this is considered one of the finest snowshoe treks in Kananaskis Country, in the Canadian Rockies.  My hubby and I did this one a week ago, and we were fortunate to share this utterly incredible space with a few cheeky gray jays and a moose that gave our salt-flecked truck a helpful (!) scrub.  😉

  1. Well! We have the possibility of a few flakes in our forecast — so there!

    More seriously, this is a gorgeous landscape, although I can’t quite remember how I ever stayed warm in that stuff. I know we did, through ice skating, snowman building, sledding, and snowshoeing, but here I sit in a 68 degree house, trying to get the courage to go out into 40 degrees!

    1. Apparently the moose in this particular area have been doing this year after year; they know where to get an easy source of salt! Last year, Parks Canada issued a warning to people visiting the Lake to “not push moose away from cars.” Even though they’re wild animals and absolutely massive, some fearless individuals were actually trying to physically move them away from their vehicles when it was time to leave. I can’t imagine – I was terrified of getting in the way of this one!
