Elk River

Dec 11, 2012

Leap of faith is one of the nicest
waterfalls Alberta has to offer and due to the awesome experience of working
for the oilfield I managed to get screwed with levels or trip timing all
season. Finally towards the end of the season Mikkel gave me a shout and we all
headed south of Calgary and into the Crowsnest pass area to finally get a trip
down to this awesome river. The Elk is situated in the bush with some of the
most awe-inspiring scenery. Our campsite had us perched a top a 100+ ft cliff
looking south over the southern landscape and down into the US.

Driving around this area really wakes you
up to the effects of logging in the area. Although the industry boasts of
reclamation and tree management, it still shocks you to see the vast areas that
do get cleared in the name of logging. Although we caught the Elk incredibly
low, we still ran laps on it for the weekend and got some cool shots. 
This area is beautiful, and a must to check
out if your around the area.
