From here on in, our trip consisted mainly of hiking, hiking and more hiking. I love hiking.

We decided to take a not so steep (but long) trek around Tunnel Mountain and ending up at the world famous hoodoos. I decided not to rent the cleats the lady at the visitor centre recommended because I decided she was "too old" to understand. Turns out she was kind of right. Keith described me as "Bambi on ice" slipping and sliding down the hills. Going up icy BC hills is pretty, it's the going down part that will trip you up. I slid down on my bum quite a few times.

Didn't actually end up getting any pictures of the hoodoos, the climax of our trip. My batteries died, go figure.

The trail wasn't a loop, so we decided to go back home along the road. Nobody picked us up, even though I'm sure we looked pretty tired and pathetic and worthy of a drive into Banff. It took us a little bit of time to finally find our car, but we did it. Went back, changed and then wandered around town before deciding on ordering some Korean food for dinner.

Hoodoos Pics
I thought you grabbed the pictures. I bought another flash drive so I'll load it up with pictures for you and send it out.

Re: Hoodoos Pics
Nope, I most certainly did nothing of the sort.
