We awoke earlier than we had been awakening these past three days. I did not sleep as well as previous nights but still got eight hours in!
After a quick breakfast we packed up and began the drive home. It was cloudy with intermittent rain showers but also sunny breaks.
We took the Galena Bay Ferry (the dangerous goods sailing😱) and were blessed with a lovely rainbow. Sweet!
We stopped for gas and loaded up with Starbucks coffees in Revelstoke before driving through the mountain passes.
There were a lot of construction delays between Revelstoke and Field BC which slowed us down a bit.
We kept hearing of a “snow event” this upcoming weekend in Alberta/BC which could impact my backpacking trip to the Rockwall. Sigh…..!
The drive went smoothly and before we knew it we were in Canmore to pick up my backcountry food order at Yamnuska. We had a nice early dinner at Woods Restaurant in Canmore and then got back to Calgary before 6 PM.
What a nice, relaxing trip! My next trip was in danger of being cancelled as the developing weather forecast was predicting up to 30-50 cm of snow at higher elevations. Fall in Alberta!! It’s not looking good.
