The Prairie View trail near Barrier Lake in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, is shown on Sunday, Nov.2, 2008. As the autumn days grow shorter, colder and drearier, there are plenty of outdoor activities in Kananaskis Country, the 4,200-square-kilometre swath of wilderness on the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains about a half hour's drive from Calgary. Many hiking trails are still open at lower elevations, and higher up some people are even beginning to strap on their snowshoes.  THE CANADIAN PRESS/Lauren Krugel
