At last the fall colours are peaking. Leading a photo hike in kananaskis yesterday it was great to be rewarded for the effort with shot after shot of the stunning larch transformation. The skies could have been better for photography but the snow flurries and cool air really sold the autumn feel.
The weather today for kananaskis is snow with a high of 4C, overnight temperatures are falling to -4C. I'm sure the few remaining trees that haven't turned will be well on the way by this weekend. So, if you have the opportunity to get out there, this weekend would be an ideal time (unless you have the availability to go on weekdays when it will be less busy of course)
The colours right now are perfect and the snow today will linger in the cooler temperatures so there will be more than a light dusting on the summits. Parks Canada have listed some larch hikes around Banff if you aren't familiar with the area, but a drive down highway 40 in kananaskis will reveal plenty of colour.
So, wrap up warm, grab the camera and the bear spray and get out there this weekend.
