One of the best things about camping is that you generally wake up much earlier than most people and consequently you beat the rush on the busier trails. I woke up super excited to be heading to Canmore to climb Ha Ling. We quickly packed our gear but ended up getting a little lost on the way (well kind of). Our type of lost consists of us pulling over, second guessing where we are heading, deciding to drive 5 more minutes, and our destination being right around the corner.
The trail was a little slippery at some points – I even look a little short cut down the mud.. but for the most part it was a great hike!
The views on the top were phenomenal and we felt fantastic after finishing it.
*sigh* I love mountains.
Then, our next adventure hit. As we pulled up to our campsite we realized there was no one actually working there. There was simply a sign with instructions and rules. With just us and one other group a little ways away, we were skeptical of where we would be staying for the next two nights. We went for a little walk around and our skepticism grew as we realized there wasn’t even any drinking water. Our past campgrounds now looking like luxurious 5 star hotels, we set up our camp, and headed into Canmore to get some water. The rest of the evening was super nice. I got to meet up with a friend who was also in Canmore for drinks while Vanessa studied for our looming and fast approaching midterms.
Unsure of what we will be doing tomorrow, but positive it will be an adventure.
