    Yeah, it really was ... I could have cast a fishing line from the balcony. Accommodations were simple but nice; it's not meant to be a luxury hotel, but it's well above rustic while maintaining a comfortable charm. Only quibbles: slow internet; lousy TV signal on a few channels; a tad noisy (i.e., not well insulated between rooms)

    ... of medication and general exhaustion, I just could not handle any more. I had to drag Brian over to a more secluded spot and recenter from being upset. I attributed my inability to my new normal situation, but in retrospect, it appears to have been simple exhaustion from the illness. A little yoga breathing and only a few tears helped to center my thinking again. Instead, I dipped my toes in the water...a new ...

    ... called for. The website has photos and videos; I skipped the videos. There's even one which the maker of the website suggests you skip. Sounds like good advice to me. I hereby pass it on to you.

    Moral of the day: Nature can be spectacular, dramatic, beautiful, and cute, but it can also be scary and COMPLETELY gross!

    NOTE: I added the torrential downpour video to yesterday's blog. Highly entertaining!

    After our meal we went back into the park and hiked to Alberta Falls. It was raining lightly and Bill and I were really feeling the increase in the elevation combined with our own out of shape-ness. Sophie had to teach Bill how to breath.

    I bombed in to use the facilities [ and purchase an apple, some water and a box of Everlasting Gobstoppers ] plus some sweat pants. You see, my sleeping bag is bust and won't zip up anymore and I'm getting tired of sleeping in my jeans and then having to retire that pair till we hit a laundry stop. It's arseaching and I'm sick of it. So some sweat pants give me something warm to sleep in that will hopefully make up for the busted bag.

    ... close by, with toilets. Who needs to pay $20 for a campground when we could get all of this for free?

    We did a short hike along an ATV trail the next morning, mostly to give the Quincy and Samson a little exercise. Then we headed further south to another group of campgrounds on the southern edge of Granby Lake. This site was a bit nicer, as one section was not yet clear cut, and there was potable water to replenish our supply. We hiked up ...
