For those enchanted with alpine meadows, Bryan Creek Trail to Lake Magog is a great hike in Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, located on the Great Divide (the British Columbia and Alberta Border) and is one of the seven parks of the UNESCO listed Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks. Each park is noted for its striking mountain landscapes, glaciers, waterfalls, intricate karst cave systems and Burgess Shale, which is probably the world’s most celebrated fossil fields due to the preserved soft-bodied organisms found there, providing evidence of the early evolution of most animal groups known today. The colors and diversity of geology, grey slate, sandstone and limestone paint the surroundings in greens, purple and pink hues, naturally. Simply the views of the narrow, proud peak of Mount Assiniboine, considered Canada’s Matterhorn, make the trip worth it. Keep an out for weasel and lynx, one of the ten carnivorous mammals inhabiting the park.
