Well, Thom and I made it back from Canada. We took our annual backpacking trip in British Columbia and Alberta this year on a grand tour of Bugaboos Provincial Park, Banff National Park, Kootenay National Park, the Icefield Parkway through Jasper National Park, and a little foray into Yoho National Park.

As always it was a good time, and I learned some very important things:

  • Pack light
  • Check the weather
  • Orange juice is very expensive at convenience stores
  • Thom needs a coffee fix just like I need an OJ fix
  • Canada apparently doesn’t have chocolate ice cream– only vanilla

I’ve got a few hundred photos to comb through, and will hopefully post them soon.
