BCP456 Kananaskis POW Camp
N51° 01.715’ W115° 01.941’
Mrs BVPete and I were out hiking some of the rearranged trails in the Lusk Creek area this afternoon and took the opportunity to locate this cap. The Kananaskis Field Station is a fascinating place to explore with a long interesting history. It is well worth the drive to visit the facility and check out the exhibits and the many trails in the area (including a part of the Trans Canada Trail).
The cap numbers are hidden by the only remaining Guard Tower. The building also served as a fire lookout tower on the ridge on the other side of Barrier Lake before being moved back to the Field Station as an exhibit. Thanks for posting a cap with some history ofth.
