Mt. Allen

Kevin and Amy had mentioned this hike more than once for the summer, so we had to do it.

We got a nice early start so we could drop Brendan’s car near Canmore. We all piled into Kevin’s and ripped back to Hwy 40 then into the Nakiska parking lot. We knew we had to go hard if we were going to get up and over before the day was done. We went up, then up then for a change it was up some more. At the lunch stop were a bunch of “obelisks” of stone just randomly stuck on the top of a mountain, crazy beautiful. After lunch we pushed hard to the summit where it started snowing and was unpleasant pretty quickly.

We didn’t stay long and started the long walk down. We started out winding down the side of the mountains, dropping elevation fast until we were on what was essentially a logging road. From here Amy lead the charge as we pushed on to the car. 20kms all up and a ton of elevation change.

Fantastic
