Hmmm I think I miss this sometimes
Anyways had a crazy weekend, mainly because mentally I was not up for it, but anyways, managed to climb two mountain passes, Guinn's at 8000ft and Buller's 8200ft in altitude, gasp, gasp, need air in my lungs. Although the actual elevation climbed was more like 5000 ft in total since we started at 5800ft anyways (I've since been slowly getting used to the higher elevation here, Calgary is already 3300ft). One thing I did managed to do very well is twist both my ankles mainly cos I was being careless in where I was putting my feet....interesting since I haven't had that happen in a long time. Oh well, nothing like anti-inflammatories to kill that. But I think its time to move on from backpacking trips to motorcycle camping.....
"You mean we have to climb THAT thing?"
And away we go
The view at the campground
"Oh look a Moose!"
One of the many pretty little creeks we had to cross
yeah I miss being anon sometimes, can't really rant freely if it involves people who know people who know people... you know what I mean... lol!
