Mount Fable
Kananaskis, Alberta
May 2, 2001
Distance: 20.0 km
Cumulative Elevation Gain: 1400 m

The 4.8 km approach up Exshaw Creek seemed long, but the views on Mount Fable are well worth it. Joining me were Dinah Kruze, Anita Jelinski, and Kari Haas. We happened to climb it when there was a forest fire raging in the north, giving us surrealistic scenes but poor visibility. On the other hand, we enjoyed warm temperatures, even on the summit.
