The Highline trail at Canmore has become very popular with bikers and hikers. For those who are familiar with it, this won’t be a problem, but if you’re doing it for the first time, it could be an issue.
The trail marker at the top of the east connector has disappeared. Someone has replaced it with a hoe. The photo at the top is the sign which used to be there.
I can only speculate on why someone would be carrying a hoe in their backpack.
In addition, there’s presently a bear warning in effect for the Highline trail.
Could this be the case of a bizarre Christmas wish for tons of beautiful blue-wax snow for Skier Bob followers gone awry?
Hoe, hoe, hoe… -)
