... the doors, but we were greeted by the traditional friendly Canadian greeting, asked to take a seat and fed with the best cheese burger we have had in a long time. Served to us by a an old guy in a Harley Davidson jacket who looked like an extra from "Sons of Anarchy" very cool. Anyway all this turned out to be way more interesting then our camping experience at Valemount. We came, we got bitten by many Mosquitos, we left. Bring on ...
... the climb. Mr. Wilmshurst came to my rescue for a portion of this up hill by carrying my pack to relieve the weight pressure on my leg. I swear we would have been an additional hour or more without his help. What an awesome worker ant I have!
