An easy interpretive walk through a dramatic gorge used as a grizzly access route to the meadows below Mt. Blane. In the next kilometer, you'll be walking through 80 million years! This is definitely a hike for late afternoon when the westering sun gilds the Opal Range. The easily climbed ridge to the north is called King Creek Ridge or Kiska tha Iyarhe 'Goat mountain' if you're a Stoney. High up and overlooking the canyon, coloured swaths of cloth are tied to the branches of a pine tree as a token of prayers to the Creator. There is meaning in the colours. Red is an offering to the Sun, green to the Earth, blue to the sky, and so on. B This canyon is known to the Stonies as Black is never used.
