Highway 1 west from Calgary to Kananaskis turnoff at highway 40. Head north for 1 kilometer to highway 1a and turn right heading east. The sign for Mount Yamnuska is 2 kilometers down hwy 1a. Turn right and park in the lot.
After the sun set, the sky began to change colors becoming pink and orange. The ice was thick enough to hold my weight but the water was only 2 inches deep. It was -6C and peaceful with no one for miles.
