Wordless Wednesday

Here are some fall photos from a wonderful little hike called Many Springs in Bow Valley Provincial Park, only a 45 minute drive from Calgary. This is a great hike for kids since it is fairly flat and there are lots of interpretive signs. My three year old thought it was the best hike ever!

This last photo shows a great view of Mt. Yamnuska which is a popular rock climbing mountain and also the classic example of the McConnell Thrust. The McConnell Thrust is a fault line dividing the harder, older carbonate rocks on top from the softer, younger clastic rocks below(covered in trees). This shows how the mountains were built!
