For our father / daughter backpacking trip in the summer of 2017, Kaycie and I eventually settled on a 5 day, 4 night backpacking and peak bagging trip around the Carnarvon Lake / Weary Creek / Lake of the Horns area of the High Rock Range in Kananaskis Country along the Great Divide. We planned for a two night stay at Carnarvon Lake with a ramble up a few of the easy peaks in the area before we'd traverse over Mount Muir towards Weary Creek Gap. After spending a night at Weary Creek and possibly ascending Mount McPhail, we'd traverse over to Lake of the Horns for our last night. On our return we'd loop over Hill of the Flowers before hiking down McPhail Creek and back to the Cat Creek parking lot.
