From the Trans Canada Highway, 80 kilometers west of Calgary, head south on Highway 40. Just before Highwood Pass, you will see the sign for Elbow Lake. It is a short 1 kilometer walk.
This Area is not accessible from November 30 to May 30 each year, as the highway is closed a little north of here during this time. The lake has many interesting features including numerous tree stumps that almost look like some strange sentinels.
Winter just setting in at the Highwood Pass area of Kananaskis Country in Alberta.
