Wasootch Peak
Kananaskis, Alberta
May 20, 2001

I discovered Wasootch Peak by accident, when I stumbled across the trail while exploring the valley below. Curious, I followed the trail all the way to the summit. Since then, I've hike up this rewarding peak a few times.

The trail drops down and then ascends a scree slope

On the way back we ventured up the creek to this overhanging waterfall

When snow free, it's possible to easily sit under the overhang (here one person tried it)
