Elbow Falls and Cobble Flats, Alberta
We have been spending the summer fairly close to home this year. That may sound unlike someone who likes to travel and wonders “Is It Possible To See It All”, but one must remember that we live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, a veritable smorgasbord of things to see and do, all within hours of our home. On this journey, we travelled about an hour west to K-Country (Kananaskis Provincial Park) and visited Elbow Falls, and continued west to Cobble Flats where we lunched prior to returning home. We were entertaining some guests from Winnipeg on this run and as we had never been here, we decided it was the place to go.
First stop, Elbow Falls. The video doesn’t do justice.
The area is very tourist friendly with a paved path along the river, protected by guard rails. There is a large picnic area, but one has to arrive very early to get a spot. A nice peaceful area to spend a day though.
As the picnic area was full, we left and headed a bit further west, ending up at Cobble Flats. A beautiful spot for a nice lunch. A beautiful creek with a picnic area along the creek. we grabbed a spot and had a great time enjoying the surroundings and company.
The area is surrounded by beauty in every direction. It is great to live in this part of the world.
