Well, I made it to Jasper in 3 days (not too sure on mileage but somewhere near 140 km I think). And it was fabulous! Once I reached Maligne Lake, I was intending on continuing up and over the Skyline Trail but unfortunately the weather had turned and it was pouring rain with very low cloud coverage. I don't mind the rain (being a Brit!) but being up on a ridge isn't the smartest place to be in those type of conditions so I had to end the trip at Maligne Lake instead. I'll go back and do the Skyline once we get better weather. I felt a little at a loss as to what to do next as I was wanting to stay out for longer, but that's the way it goes. Mother Nature will always have the final word. Trail report and photos to follow.
