Kayaking Bow Lake - July 23 2022
Bow Lake is a 2.5 hour drive out of Calgary near the start of the Icefields Parkway. I am fascinated by the fact the water we kayaked on then followed us to Calgary, in fact 60% of drinking water in the city is from the Bow watershed.
If you want still water on any of the mountain lakes your best bet is early morning, but in this case hello 2.5 hour drive. We had perfectly calm water when we parked but by the time the boats were put together it was already rippling.
We had a fantastic view of the Crowfoot Glacier. I wish I could capture a snapshot of the warm sun, the smell of the trees and the clear air.
When the wind dropped the bugs really came out, especially on the shore.
