Just driving today. My hair is hurting me from being in a ponytail for so long, my legs feel itchy from not shaving and I feel like I’m losing the muscle tone I have gotten from climbing since I’ve been sitting since Bellingham… 8 days. Yup, that’ll do it.
It’s raining again and we’re on Highway 97 to Jasper and Banff, a two-day trip. It’s quite beautiful, though… lots of winding full rivers and undulating valleys and rising hills. Everything is green. The views here are more mellow and casual; not grand beauty but comfortable.
We saw 2 black bears a huge bison and a herd of unrestrained horses and a reindeer.
