-What trail is this?-

You’ve got one last opportunity to join the fun. There’s always one difficult picture with which to puzzle you. In this edition, I think it will be #10.

#13 will trick a few people. 

#5 Follow the snowcat tracks across the road to what trail?

Posted below are the photos numbered 1 – 14. Leave your answers in the comments. Click on the photos for a larger image. Good luck!!

Thanks for your guesses. Here are the official answers:
1. Lake Louise – Moraine Lake road
2. PLPP – Jct of Elk Pass and Fox Creek
3. Lake Louise – Fairview
4. PLPP – Jct of Elk Pass and Hydroline(north end of Hydroline, or bottom of Hydroline. Hydroline also joins Elk Pass higher up).
5. If skiing on Bill Milne, you would follow the cat tracks across the road to the Evan-Thomas trail.
6. Upper Bankhead
7. Ribbon Creek
8. PLPP – Tyrwhitt
9. Bill Milne
10. Spray River East, about 2K from the Banff Springs Hotel.
11. WBC – Moose loop
12. Evan-Thomas. Where the grooming ends, you have to follow a narrow snowshoe trail for 200 metres to reach the Wedge Connector, crossing two bridges along the way.
13. Come-Along. Before the 2013 floods, this section of trail was Pocaterra.
14. PLPP – Kananaskis Fire Lookout north side.

Awe, missed participating in this one but I see a few that I didn’t recognize at all! Well done on the fun; but none from Sandy McNabb! You should post a (mysterious, challenging and possibly historical) photo at Christmas & prize it up!
