Today we hiked Eager Hill, just outside of Cranbrook, BC in Canada. We’ve been looking at this for over a year now and no one seemed to know where it was. After several attempts we decided to try this place on the highway that everyone goes to, and, sure enough, this was it. It is not called Eager Hill, and I don’t even know what it is called, but it’s the place.

The hike itself was gentle, around 5 miles or 8.5 km. Gentle uphill in most places and well worn. The app I use says an elevation gain of 239 feet to a maximum height of 3215 feet. Took us approximately 2 hours with several pauses for pictures.

This may be Rapid River, Saskatchewan, not really sure. Whatever the name, it connects Lac La Ronge with Hale Lake. We walked to Hale Lake with several people, including relatives of the airman the lake was named after. Many lakes in northern Saskatchewan are named after servicemen who died during WW2. A beautiful hike to a beautiful tribute.
