This is our first visit to the Elbow Falls area since the June floods that hit Calgary area. This area has been cut off from motorists because of a washed out bridge. We just could not believe how big the damage to the area right at the falls. It has changed dramatically. Where picnic tables, trails, and trees used to be is now a dry river bed. The falls also seem to be now a little shorter probably because of rocks and debris carried downstream.
We dropped by at Bragg Creek to pick up lunch but most of the places we used to frequent were still closed for business as a result of the flood.
After our stop at the Elbow Falls, we proceeded to Forgetmenot Ponds for a quiet time and then off to Cochrane for ice cream.
