Home again

I got back from my backpacking trip at Mount Robson a few days ago. It's a beautiful place, probably the best scenery of any place I've been backpacking. There were waterfalls, glaciers, the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies, lakes, rocks, trees, flowers, and real outhouses (not the roofless, doorless kind we had on last year's trip).

No matter how long or short a backpacking hike is, it seems like I'm ready for it to be over long before it's actually over, especially on the last day. I guess that means I could handle almost any length of backpacking trail if I had enough time. And somehow, it all seems worth it when I'm doing shorter hikes without a heavy pack, and eating, sleeping, and just hanging out in the middle of nowhere. Miles away from my job, my other responsibilities, and even the nearest car.

I've posted photos on Facebook from this trip, and you don't even have to be a Facebook member to see them. Here they are:
Part 1
Part 2

And here's one to look at even if you don't feel like looking at the albums:
