This weekend, a change of pace.....3 lovely days of backpacking with Keith, Anna and Stew. I enjoyed some quality time in the woods with a few of my favorite people. The starting point was just a twenty minute drive from our house here in Banff.
As for the question, some more thoughts on backpacking/fastpacking in a post in the near future! But for now, some great photos to share! We will let the photos tell the story.
