Rocky Mountain Birthday Cake Hike!
The hike was a colourful trek through fields of wildflowers. June is the rainy month and the foothills are lush and green. The lower elevation hikes are the best spots to be immersed in wildflowers in the late spring.
Prairie Creek Trail, on Hwy. 66/Elbow Falls Trail Kananaskis, is a nice 4 ish hour, 10 km rolling terrain hike that is perfect on a day when the clouds are low and thunder storms forecasted (like they were yesterday!). Make sure you wear your waterproof boots.The creek is high right now and we had to ford it at the end of the hike, on Prairie Link Trail.
