Where I stayed
We decided to take a not so steep (but long) trek around Tunnel Mountain and ending up at the world famous hoodoos. I decided not to rent the cleats the lady at the visitor centre recommended because I decided she was "too old" to understand. Turns out she was kind of right. Keith described me as "Bambi on ice" slipping and sliding down the hills. Going up icy BC hills is pretty, it's the going down part that will trip you up. I slid down on my bum quite a few times.
Didn't actually end up getting any pictures of the hoodoos, the climax of our trip. My batteries died, go figure.
The trail wasn't a loop, so we decided to go back home along the road. Nobody picked us up, even though I'm sure we looked pretty tired and pathetic and worthy of a drive into Banff. It took us a little bit of time to finally find our car, but we did it. Went back, changed and then wandered around town before deciding on ordering some Korean food for dinner.
