Snowshoeing in Kananaskis

Free Desktop Wallpaper

As a little bonus for my friends and followers every month I provide a free image for use as your desktop background wallpaper on your computer. Each beautiful photo is a picture that I have created and it always includes a calendar overlay for the month. I know that I’m always looking for a calendar and having one on my desktop is very convenient!

This months wallpaper image is from a day trip to Peter Lougheed Provincial Park in Kananaskis Country. There are plenty of designated snowshoe routes in Kananaskis and this picture is from a family trip around the Penstock loop. The Penstock loop is relatively easy with very little elevation change, so it was an ideal choice for getting the kids used to their new snowshoes. It is also very well traveled, so unless you are in the first group out after a big snowfall there isn’t much trail-breaking required in deep snow. So other than the fact that you are wearing snowshoes, doing this trip is very similar to going for a hike in the woods.

But as I learned when my snowshoe broke, the snowshoes really do make a massive difference and walking on this trail without them is very hard! Fortunately we were most of the way around and I only had to slog it out for a little while to get back to the car!
