Ing's Mine Ice Cave

An impromptu visit to Ing's Mine Cave. My other objective had been snow-covered this morning so I rode my bicycle back into this place west of Bragg Creek in Kananaskis Country. A sign at the bottom warns of sour gas eminating from the earth and there is always a definite sour gas smell floating below. A natural gas well had been drilled below and capped a few years ago to trap some of it.

I'm exiting Ing's Mine Ice cave below and yeah, it really is that steep.

Below, since this was a secondary thing to do I didn't have a flashlight and went into the cave as far as natural light allowed. I was the only one here and scurried about taking pictures for about half an hour by myself. Just as I was leaving, some other hikers were arriving.

Below, this was apparently once a working mine but the "how" of it escapes me. Some scenes from Brokeback Mountain were filmed near here, basically behind me and one mountain over . . . . Moose Mountain. This was more popular when the road was open to traffic but now it's either walking, bicycling or motorcycle to the base.

What did they mine from there, Rick?

Gorgeous, if rugged, country! I don't think I have the steadiness of leg or mind to have made it up there. Way too steep for madame hazel! Thanks for sharing!
