An amazing photo by @leenordbyephoto ・・・ Bacon strip - Last night I spent a fantastic night exploring the underworld of the Rockies with Brent and Alex from @canmorecavetours. Who knew so much amazing beauty thrived in absolute darkness. So many cool calcium carbonate structures. The amazing thing is they grow at something like 1 inch every 100 years. So this bacon strip is thousands of years old.

The prairie crocuses have it looking a lot like spring on the way up to the cave! Have a great long weekend and Happy Easter to everyone! 🐣

Think of Caves as the Earth's time capsules. Over millions of years, drop by drop, they store and record important information about our planet's history, providing an invaluable opportunity for us to step back in time and gain a better understanding of how the Earth operates. They even have a story to tell about one of the most hot-button topics of our day: Climate Change. On April 22, 2017, in recognition of Earth Day, Canmore Cave Tours and the Canmore Museum and Geoscience Centre will host the second edition of the unEarthed Speaker series, with a focus on the climate change discussion: At 1pm, Binnu Jeyakumar from Alberta's own Pembina Institute will lead a discussion on Alberta's Climate Leadership Plan. This is a free presentation at the Canmore Civic Centre open to all ages. At 4:00pm, take of tour of Rat's Nest Cave with Binnu and the Cave Tours team for a more in-depth discussion on caves and climate research, and some cave fun too! The cave tour is open to ages 12 and up, and is $75/person. Be a part of this very important conversation and experience one of the Best Adventures IN the Rockies.

Explore the Rat's Nest Cave:  Interactive Map

Rat’s Nest Cave is a constant 5°C (41°F) all year.  Why is that?  Because caves reflect the mean annual temperature, so no matter what the outside weather is like, it’s always pleasant inside the cave.  Like most alpine caves, it is cool in summer, mild in winter.  In 1987, the cave was designated a Provincial Historic Site.  Access to the cave is restricted to protect the delicate environment within. The Rat’s Nest Cave has over 4 km of explored passage, and lies under Grotto Mountain near Canmore, Alberta.
