I also said that most of my Aussie friends wouldn't believe that after grinding 7 km uphill I could still nearly sideswipe a bear. So Steve kindly gave me his number.

When I got going again, I crested Bow Pass (elevation: 2,067 metres) and continued on to the next campground. Again ...
... made it down in just under 2 hours as we had set a leisurely pace. We were amazed at the steady stream of people walking up.

Beautiful scenery all day, with green forests clear blue sky ...
