Photographer's Note

This was taken at Elbow Falls this winter.]
The Elbow River, part of the Bow River Basin, is an important resource for Bragg Creek as a source of potable water, recreation, irrigation, and household use. It also supplies people downstream including Calgary where it merges with the Bow River.

The river flows through the Elbow Valley district of Kananaskis, that starts about 8 km west of Bragg Creek along highway 66 and runs some 25 kilometres from the Kananaskis gate to the Little Elbow Recreation Area - from the foothills to the towering Rockies. There are many campgrounds, hiking, horseback and cycling trails set among extraordinary scenery. The highlights are Allen Bill Pond, Forgetmenot Pond and Elbow Falls where a paved interpretive trail leads to a lookout over the falls.
