‘Moderate’ Day Hike that would probably take me three days

I’ve never climbed to this stunning little lake and I don’t think I ever will. Although the trail is said to be one of the ‘best day hikes in Kananaskis,’  it’s a steep 16k up and back, and before you even get to the trailhead you have to drive more than 40k on the unpaved Smith-Dorrien Trail.  

All very spectacular of course, but I’m quite happy to just keep abstracting the pictures my daughter sends me of the places they get to.
