It’s Monday on my WordPress blog, and after a three week holiday break, I am back in Alberta. After the morning exploring Crescent Falls and having lunch in Nordegg, we spent the afternoon at Kootenay Plains Provincial Recreation Area.
Parking is just off the David Thompson Highway where we found this memorial plaque explaining the names of the four peaks behind it. All four peaks are part of Ex Coelis Mountain.
We then set off to hike the 5km to Siffleur Falls (next Monday.) There are two suspension bridges across two arms of the North Saskatchewan River. Yup, the same river as seen in these photos, but further east. The photo below shows three of the four mountains named above: the Ardennes, Rhine and Elbe.
This was the scene looking upriver from the second suspension bridge; Mount Elbe looks even closer.
This last photo was taken as we came back from the hike and looks downriver towards Abraham Lake.
