A saying that couldn’t be more true in the case of getting to this lake; Upper Kananaskis Lake.
Don’t get me wrong, the lake is beautiful, and not to be sniffed at as the destination, but the journey is so much nicer. That is, if you go and use the correct route. Highway 40 from our end is the only way we go into Kananaskis Country and on to the lake, however, this route is closed every year from December to mid June. Yes, you can still get to the lake during the closure, but that means a large part of your journey will be spent on a boring straight highway, which is really not attractive at all.
So, with the route open as of last week, we took a trip out to the lake to get our fix of the mountains.
