Long Weekend Escape

Dave returned from his Yukon adventures on Thursday and we quickly re-packed the camping gear to head down to Waterton Lakes National Park for the long weekend. Nothing like driving another 300 km after completing an 8000 km roadtrip!

Saturday we completed the hike around Akamina Ridge via Forum and Wall Lake.

Sunday, we attempted the hike to Lineham Ridge but due to the high heat and some sunburns, we ended up turning around before the scree slopes and instead spent the afternoon swimming in Rowe Lake.
