Travel Directions:
Jump Creek (Smuts Creek) is on the west side of Hwy 742, 39.5 km south of the Three Sisters Drive intersection in Canmore, and 3.0 km north of “Gonna Snow” Lake, in front of Mount Smuts and The Fist.

To reach Hwy 742 (also known as Spray Lakes Rd. / Smith-Dorrien Rd.): From Hwy 1 (Trans-Canada Hwy), use Exit 91 “Hwy 1A - Canmore.” Follow Bow Valley Trail 2.2 km, turn left (northwest) onto Railway Ave. Proceed 0.5 km and turn left (west) at Main St. (also known as 8th St.), go 0.6 km and turn left (south) onto Bridge Rd. (also known as 8th Ave. / Rundle Drive). At the “T” intersection, turn left (south) on Three Sisters Drive, proceed 0.6 km and turn right (west) at Spray Lakes Rd. (also known as Hwy 742). (Or simply follow the helpful “Kananaskis Country” signs throughout Canmore.) See map of Canmore.

This is one of the most artful pans of the film and its subject is entirely worthy. Lee fans our flaming emotions ruthlessly, positioning this welcome moment of serenity immediately after the tumultuous Thanksgiving scenes. Santaolalla’s “Riding Horses” completes our emotional transformation which, like everything up on Brokeback, is short lived. See:
