Before, during, and hopefully after account of a Great Divide Route journey in the summer of 2010.

Canmore, Alberta

Today we wrapped up loose ends before our departure tomorrow.  Nate and I decided that since we were staying in Canmore, the town just southeast of Banff, that we'd depart from there instead of trekking up the 10 or so miles and then coming back down.  We justified this decision by driving up to Banff with Peter late Tuesday morning and hiking up Tunnel Mountain and stretching out our legs after being in the car since Saturday morning..  It offered beautiful views of the town and the surrounding mountains.

A bit of foreshadowing...we did this hike miraculously in between rain storms.  When we got here yesterday, it was pouring.  It poured all day today, and it just might continue to pour.  'Tis the rainy season in this part of Canada...
