Made it!

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.


  1. Oh the places you go!

    You live in an outdoors paradise there. I look forward to the photos.

    Cheers, Paul

  2. AWESOME! What a great adventure. I look forward to reading more about it!

  3. Shame you didn't get to do the skyline, but it sounds awesome nevertheless. Looking forward to seeing the photos.
