Holy smokes. We got off the ferry at Balfour close to 9pm. After getting into Nelson, it was closer to 9:30pm. We drove around the city to see if there were any vacancies at motels within our usual price range. After hearing, "Sorry, we're full" four times, we were starting to consider the potential reality of car camping. We didn't realize that we were arriving in Nelson the night that the Shambhala Music Festival in Salmo (30 min away) ended. Festival goers had snagged most of the spots in many of the nearby motels and inns. It was getting late. But thankfully, above the price range of most backpackers, we finally found a comfy bed at the Prestige Lakeside Resort.
It was absolute luxury.
Quite a treat and a beautiful space; a king-sized bed with comfy fluffy pillows and a plush duvet, a bathroom almost the width of my living room, the hair dryer in its own dust cover.

We have been working hard outside to harvest all the crops and prepare the farm for the winter. I have had a chance to try a lot of new things such as angle-grinding, felling trees and beginning work on the construction of a new veranda.
All the WWOOFers here are such beautiful people, but I have been spending ...
... up staying the night camped out next to the road at the trailhead, warm with food, fire and belly laughs. It was a great start to my last section of the trail.
There was a cabin we had seen on the maps sitting 55 miles into the 100 mile section and we wanted to get there in 2 nights to make up for lost time. The first day we covered 31 miles (50 kilometers), then made up the rest the next day. We were so wrapped with ourselves but also pretty sore and fatigued ...
... up views of the incredible mountain sheep. In the evening we relaxed in the hot springs, followed by a long sleep and lazy morning. Again unsure of our exact destination we waited for a ride and along one came! Naresh was headed home to Calgary, and as we saw such beautiful sights of the mountains during the ride we opted for the city either than the tourist town of Banff. Another generous soul, he gave us keys to his place and ...

Mark finished the day off with a spectacular triple somersault on the run out to the car park. The cameras were already packed away so unfortunately - no photographic evidence was captured.
Back to the Jackson's Hole for the last time - damn - that ginger beef dish was good!
