Indian Oils Hills
Kananaskis, Alberta
November 8, 2003

Two weeks ago we climbed Bluerock Mountain, but since then the area had been hit with snow. A much less ambitious trip was in order. We hiked the Indian Oils Trail although instead simply hiking out and back, we performed a counterclockwise loop. We first followed a ridge east of trail. After reaching the trail, we followed it back to the road.

We had clear skies but lots of snow

From the high point, Bluerock Mountain dominates the view northeast

The cold, dark shadows contrast with the sunlit slopes

The fresh snow offered little resistance

Although the hills are treed, there are plenty of openings to take in the view
