July 14, 2018 – After finding the surprising York Creek Falls, next on our agenda was Star Creek Falls. You can type the waterfall into Google Maps and find it, but I’ll give quick directions.  I’ll reference from the intersection of Hwy 3 (Crowsnest Hwy) and 507 (just past Lundbreck).  Here’s the overview… So you go 20.8 km on Hwy 3 then make a bunch of turns; here are the expanded details of those turns… Once you get to the…

#58 – Lundbreck Falls

July 14, 2018 – It had been some time without seeing a waterfall, and with the news we wouldn’t have kids for the weekend we planned a further venture than usual down to the Crowsnest Pass area.  First stop – Lundbreck Falls.
