Having spent most of my life in Alberta and much of it in Calgary, I am very familiar with the place names and natural features shown in this map detail. In my mind’s eye I can see the frozen waterfall on the east face of Cascade Mountain. I can see the near vertical line etched into the mountain opposite the turn off to what was Sunshine Lodge. I can see the Elk grazing in the fields south of the airport. I wish I could return more often.
