Check out Jura Creek and Canyon out on Hwy #1A just 2.4 km east of Exshaw – park on the south side of the highway at the Greymont cement plant entrance. You’ll see the dirt trail directly across the road that leads up and into the cool, watery canyon. Wear sturdy sandals to enjoy sloshing, rock hopping and crossing log jams up through the creek as you head into a pretty little valley. Near the end of the trail, keep right. Where the trail seems to end you can climb a small steep bouldery section and see ancient first nations pictographs there. A new favourite of ours. Kids and dogs love it too! (2-4 hrs, 7 km round trip, easy, no elevation gain). >DS
Beat the heat today and check out the hidden dam ruins pools and little waterfall today. Excusion #36 in the “Out’n About” guide book, this easy walk that starts up in the Canmore Three Sisters subdivision is sure to be a hit with families with kids of all ages looking for fun day to escape and relax. Take a picnic and go! >DS

New Menu Announced at the Georgetown Inn
The pub is known for their award winning fish & chips which are known as the best in the Bow Valley and which are staying on the menu. Be sure to ask for a pint of guiness to compliment the halibut or basa…..
The best part of this summer menu is the new salads that one can enjoy on their “English Garden” inspired patio (if these rains ever stop and we get any sun!). June has been very rainy but at least it is looking up for July.
You can go anywhere in Canmore and have salad… but there are three “standout” salads on this new menu are to die for.
The Champagne Salad is a fresh arugula (no not a bitter one), crisped prosciutto and goat cheese toasts. All topped with a champagne dressing made in their kitchen. Wow what a combo of flavours!!
Next the Farmhouse Salad which is chock full of greens, veggies and protein. Roast beef, ham, chicken, cottage cheese on a bed of greens!!
The Miner’s Lamp Salad is what I call a “brain food” salad. With muscle building spinach, goats cheese, roasted almonds, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, mandarin sections and quinoa (hence brain food) all covered in avocado dressing. Wow is the word for this salad!!
Out of the 6 salads on the menu the above are my favourite. Especially with their homemade dressings like avacado or the balsalmic. Great for any time of the year!!!
I like the fact that they have added a Rib Eye steak grilled to your liking! There’s a man’s favourite!
The “Mussel Fridays” are fantastic, they pair wonderfully with white wines. I prefer a half litre myself. The seasonings change every week and the best part if you cannot make it for Friday it is now on their new menu. As a compliment if you love seafood like I do, order the prosciutto wrapped scallops or their fish cakes with a mouth-bursting dipping sauce!!! Need I say more?
I cannot forget though to mention their breakfasts which are included in a night’s stay if you are an out of Towner spending the night. I recommend their full English breakfast served with baked beans, that’s a real English twist and is a great way to start your day. If you are a fan of French Toast be prepared for it to be “STUFFED”. Yes stuffed…….four different ways! Caramelized apples, fresh oranges with pecans and triple sec, mixed berries and cream cheese or swiss cheese and black forest ham! Again I use the word “stuffed” which is how you will feel after eating this. The French Toast is accompanied by real maple syrup from Quebec to smother your French toast with, none of that fake stuff here! Once again: “STUFFED”.
The service is amazing and the best part is the Pub Manager is an authentic British gentleman. Dorian comes straight from England and he will be “gutted” if you don’t come down and try out their breakfasts, lunches or dinners.
So I may have just gained ten pounds but that is what the Triple Crown Challenge is for right? To work off the mouth-watering new items by taking their hiking challenges!!
Coming to Banff or Canmore for Canada Day Celebrations July 1st? Good choice as there’s nothing more fun than our parades, free pancake breakfasts and small western town hospitality eh! Fireworks usually start about 11pm, once it gets dark. See you out’n about! >DS
It was a great day to visit Johnston Canyon today. The water flow is amazing, the crowds still relatively light and the weekend might be your last opportunity to enjoy it before the summer season starts in full swing. See you Out’n About! >DS
