There is no boredom here.

The Grassi Lakes Trail is a very unique hike just outside Canmore. This trail takes you to 2 gorgeous turqouise lakes that are spring fed. Just few meters from the trailhead, there is a fork with signage: Easy or More Difficult route. Of course we got intrigued and chose the more difficult one - and were glad we took it! This more difficult route climbs gradually through forested terrain and cliffs, sometimes walking through streamlets before reaching a nice view point that shows off a large cascading waterfalls off a side of a cliff, and a view of the town of Canmore.  It then took us to a very steep section of switchbacks while gaining elevation. Once we got to the top, the view was awesome where we were greeted by 2 small, shallow, crystal clear lakes/ponds that were so deep turqouise and green in color. Also, the rock cliffs surrounding the upper lakes is popular to rock climbers.
