It’s about the journey and not the destination


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.

  2. I agree many times it is the journey not the destination. Over the years the long drive to town from my cabin has been the high-point of these semi-weekly trips. Though my cabin was surrounded by mountains and trees and the drive with the same surroundings the ever changing world of nature along that road refreshes one soul.

    • How long was that drive Pete? Sounds like it was a great trip with the changing season bringing different points of interest along the way.
