Day Trip To Kananaskis

In the UK, we wouldn’t normally entertain going out for a day trip on a Bank Holiday Monday but over here, it is a totally different prospect. The first Monday in August is a public holiday here in Alberta and after spending the morning finishing up work in the back yard, we headed out for an afternoon drive to Kananaskis Country, which lies between Okotoks and the Rockies. Given the level of traffic……progress was swift and in no time at all, we had reached our destination, where we saw lots of samples of the Albertan provinicial flower, the Wild Rose…The Bellflower’s also looked very pretty…Alberta’s Provinicial Animal is the Big Horn Sheep. No big horn’s on this sweet little young’un though…Having heard about our love of Alberta Beef this Cow was looking a smidge nervous!…Here’s a couple of other locals…The scenery, less than a hour’s drive from home, wasn’t too shabby either!…It was only a short trip but very relaxing and very enjoyable.
