Day 37: Hicking Day

Banff (AB)

Hiking Day.

Following the advice of an employee at Banff National Park, we decide to climb the park’s most difficult mountain calles the Cory Pass. Once again, temperature is perfect. Sun, heat and no wind!

The ascent is very steep from the start, but the rewards are glorious once you get to Cory Pass, a few hours later. Superb high mountain conditions. We are literally surrounded by vertical rocky peaks over 3000 meters!

The day ends with a peaceful visit to the Fairmont Château and a good and well-deserved cold beer (ok, maybe a few) on a terrace!
