The Rails to Trails between Cranbrook and Kimberley offers 25 km. of travel through gentle rolling countryside with great views in all directions.

I missed the perfect photo-op today. Oh the shame
I went to Elizabeth lake for a walk and a beautiful bald eagle came swooping down and grabbed something out of the water.
He had a bit of a struggle getting himself airborne again but when he did he headed straight south and disappeared into the trees.

What wonderful pictures - another place I'd love to see someday. Grin

And isn't that always the way, Judy - but at least you got to enjoy seeing the whole process, rather than having half your attention on the camera. Smile

The Kootenay Trout Hatchery is a short drive from Cranbrook on the Wardner Fort Steele Road. It is a popular place to visit. From there you can take a drive, or go for a bike ride along Fenwick Road through a beautiful area called Picture Valley beside the Kootenay River. It makes for a pleasant bike loop returning by the relatively quiet highway past Peckhams Lake and Norbury Lake, a popular provincial campground.

Boy oh boy! It sure is nice to find yet more beautiful scenery and pictures here at HWF. I really must remember to explore more often, and I will, once the Lafarge family is gone from the nest area!


I came for the eagles, and stayed for the friends I made
