    The Trip out there. This is about 15 minutes outside of Calgary where I live.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Path gets a little harrowing but it's nothing like what's to come later.

    [​IMG]

    The path runs up past the top of that cliff.

    [​IMG]

    Picture of the frozen water.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The cliff top you can see in the distance will be scaled and have reverse pictures taken.

    [​IMG]

    The cliff outcropping one third of the way into the picture is the exact spot where the photos are going to be taken.

    [​IMG]

    That down below is the river we took the previous pictures from.

    [​IMG]

    A higher view of the cliff we'll be taking pictures from. Look at the tree on the very left and how big it is and then look at the tree beside the cliff. Those trees are the same frigging size.

    [​IMG]

    That's a picture of where the previous pictures were taken. Lots of trees in the way though.

    [​IMG]

    Another picture of the river we walked down beside.

    [​IMG]

    That's the shale hill we climbed up. It's far more treacherous than it looks. Specially when you're doing it in skate shoes and shorts. Ignore the lens cover partially obstructing. I didn't noticed it had become jammed during our adventures. I figure it out in 3 more shots.

    [​IMG]

    That's where I was taking not the previous, but the 3 previous pictures before that.

    [​IMG]

    Another shot of the treacherous hill.

    [​IMG]

    Same picture I just fixed my camera.

    [​IMG]

    You have no idea how low the water level is right now. It's insane.

    [​IMG]

    That's a 50ft drop I took a picture of.

    [​IMG]

    That's view of next time pushing the envelope.

    [​IMG]

    Again, the shot doesn't do justice as to how far down that actually is.

    An old picture of me at the same place.

    On the 5th and 6th pictures I posted above, imagine turning around 180º. That's where that jump was made.

    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    I used to go hiking a lot when I lived in TN. There's an area called Mt Leconte that I went up all the time. There was another area in North Carolina called Cataloochee. I miss those places. Only thing I wasn't nuts about was running into bears, which happened to me twice. Nerve wracking!

    Sure is. Specifically Elbow falls. You have to jump the bars to get to the good places though.

    I've never had problems with bears. I went camping with my GF and a few of her friends. So they shared one tent and me and another guy who's the BF of my GF friend (Yeah I made that more confusing than I should have) shared another.

    Apparently, a bear came in the middle of the night and was sniffing around the tent. The other guy was shitting himself. I just handed him the axe and told him to hit it if it came in the tent and rolled over and went back to sleep.

    I've spent lots of time out in Kananaskis and not once did I see a bear.
