Perhaps one of the more unique hikes I have ever done is a hike in Waterton Lakes Canada caled the Crypt Lake hike. It is an 11 mile roundtrip hike with an elevation gain of 2300 feet fo a beautiful lake. Some places of the hike are steep, but perhaps the most unique part of the hike is through a 100 foot tunnel.(upcoming variation pic) Following this, is a brief portion of a hike that is not for those with fear of heights as you have to hold onto a cable and go up a ledge. The view of the lake was well worth the hike....Scanned negative.

This is a picture of the ladder that leads to the 100ft tunnel. It was created by erosion. One thing I failed to mention in the notes, is that you have to take a boat ride to the trailhead. On this boat ride, we were warned of bears in the area and to stay in groups of four on the hike. I had the very good fortune of joining up with a wonderful couple from Edmonton for this hike. This photo was taken by the wife.

One final picture to show the cable that you hold onto. It's not a very long section but it's nice to have the cable to hold onto at times. This picture was taken by someone else as I was to busy worrying about holding on to the cables and not falling.

gorgeous photo Jim, but what a hike, a 2300' elevation change on an 5-6 mile hike is significant. but as you said, the view looks worth it
Wonderful image, dear friend!!!!
Great work, as always!!!!
