I would recommend to you Nigel Pass dayhike. It can be done in leisure pace 5-6hrs return.

You can explore alpine at the pass for few hours (there is tarn at far end, out of view) or head a bit into Brazeau canyon towards Cataract Pass. Rock Hop across Brazeau River and you will see this sign:

Follow this trail; almost immediately it opens up, most of photos I posted so far from Brazeau Canyon were taken within first 1-2km. You don't have to go all the way to Cataract Pass (although it is feasible as day hike); turn back when you feel you had enough. It is quite different from typical Rockies are very rewarding
