Exploring
Simply Selles by David Selles

I continued my exploration of this amazing community this week.

My main exploration took me to Allison Creek Falls.

I’ve been to Chinook Lake many times over the years and never even knew that those falls were there.

It’s truly a hidden gem of the area.

I’m not one to go out and hike a mountain on my own but once I saw this trail on an app and saw it was a shorter hike with no elevation gain I figured I would head out on my own and see what it was like.

Man, am I ever happy I did.

The walk there while not overly difficult still provides a couple small challenges like crossing the creek a few times.

I also enjoyed the fact that for my walk to the falls, I was the only one around.

I was able to listen to the water flow through the forest and also heard birds chirping in the trees.

It was truly a peaceful walk.

Then I got to the waterfall.

Pictures don’t do it justice.

The stair like falls are very unique and serve as a beautiful ending to this hike.

When standing in the middle of the creek, it looks as though the falls lead straight to a mountain in the background.

I stayed and took photos for about half and hour and was the only person there the entire time.

One of my sisters is planning a day trip to the Pass with her family in a few weeks and we are definitely going to be doing this hike together.

It’s just too beautiful not to share.

I can’t wait to keep exploring all the Crowsnest Pass has to offer the rest of the summer.
