The Fortress

This was my first hike in Kananaskis.  I had planned on completing a loop trip, starting up the Headwall Lakes route and returning via the Chester Lake valley, however an angry grizzly bear in the area forced a trail closure.  I was considering other options, as the possibility of the bear crossing into Headwall valley did not excite me, when two other groups showed up.  We ended up hiking in and out to The Fortress via the Headwall route.  It was a brutally hot day, and the summit views were hazy to say the least, but I believe I took some good photos of the Headwall Lakes.
