Photo of the Week: Week 34

I made this image last week on a quick overnight trip out to Kananaskis Country. I’d been to this particular creek once before but didn’t have time to hike in very far and basically just had to shoot from the road. I wanted to explore a little further this time so I left myself some more time and tried hiking up the valley. I was hoping that by gaining some elevation I might get up to a point where the view of the mountain wasn’t quite so blocked by the trees in the valley bottom. While it was a good thought, it was unfortunately pretty tough bush whacking through really dense brush and very slow going. After fighting my way up and really not making much progress I decided it just wasn’t going to happen and turned around. Realizing I was going to miss the sunset light on the hike back down and not having much of a backup location in mind, I had to make the best of what I had here in this tough spot. I stopped at a couple points along the creek to shoot some pictures and this one was about the best I came up with.

As I was heading back to the road, I moved away from the creek and to my surprise found a perfectly good trail heading up the valley… Isn’t that always the way it goes? I guess I’ll have to go back and try it again without the bushwhacking!
