Wedge Pond -- June 29, 2008

Kananaskis Valley - Wedge Pond. Trail details: Take Highway 40 past Kananaskis Village. Look for Wedge Day Use parking lot on left side of road.

We'd never heard of Wedge Pond before this day. It's not even really much of a hike, but more of a 1 km loop around a small pond. It was busy, and there was a lot of activity, but you know what? I'd go back there on a warm summer day in a heartbeat, just for the view:



And we continued along Highway 40...

Thank you... coming from such a great photographer, I'm flattered. :-)

It's an amazing area. You could drive by it 100 times and not realize such a relaxing is tucked away just off the highway...

It does look great but why is it called Wedge Lake?

Hi Rick, thanks for stopping by! I peeked at your blog and I'm looking forward to reading more. Beautiful photos!

Suzanne - that was a great question, and I didn't know. Turns out it's named after one of the surrounding mountains named "The Wedge". It had a - unsurprisingly - distant wedge look about it. I have a photo of it, and I'll post it shortly.
