Yamnuska hike

The first mountain in Kananaskis, Yamnuska, had been calling my name for a while.

Highlights include:

  • The view from the top.
  • The sheer face and straight-down drop.
  • The little critter who was not afraid at all.
  • Sliding down the scree on the way down.
  • Vaughan’s brother running as fast as physically possible down the scree.
