... hiking together. Heather got behind a little bit for a while, and Walker kept going "off piste" and taking shortcuts and getting lost. So some of the hike there was a bit of a circus.
When we got to the cliff/ladder/tunnel part, I thought Heather wasn't going to make it. She was already bushed from the long hike/climb/altitude, and she doesn't like heights at all, and this was enough to discourage a lot of people. But she made ...

We crossed the border into Canada within minutes (didn't even have to get out of the car) and within a few hours was skirting the edge of Calgary. The weather followed over the mountains and it ...
