Wild Rose Country has some phenomenal things to see, but is it really necessary to walk for hours to experience them? For those who have embraced ‘sloth girl summer,’ luckily the answer is no! This sunny season, check out Hard Luck Canyon, a magical spot where you can keep things light and enjoy a picturesque picnic.

Located about 20 minutes from Whitecourt, Alberta, this stunning 1 km hike is just as enchanting as it is simple and won’t leave you with sore legs, a burning booty, or any blisters.
