The Devil's Gap

The Devils Gap
@ Lake Minnewanka, Banff Alberta CANADA

Lake Minnewanka is well known for being one of the Oldest Native Indian settlements found in, Banff National Park, Alberta., CANADA.

Although the Indians did live and hunt there, they always said there were bad spirits in the wind that would pass through that area. That area is called Devil's Gap. (Can you see it in the middle here?).

"The Devils Gap" in the lake was further up from where they lived and they absolutely would NOT take their canoes up anywhere near there to hunt or fish. The boat ride takes us close but not all they way there. (Ha! Still superstitious!)...

The "GAP" or "Mouth" in this area of the Rockies was formed because the glaciers cut straight through the Rockies there, way back in the day.

Scientists go there to Lake Minnewanka, and the Devils gap, all the time trying to figure out why each side perfectly mirrors the other on the rock walls.
