Yesterday was all about driving, today was all about walking! The only thing I had to do with my car today was look at it when I walked out the front the door. I let them know at the front desk that I would be gone all day but my car wouldn't. I just felt I wanted someone to know where I was! I had about 25km to cover and the first stop was the Visitor Center to get some information. It was a hike on its own to get there but there was lots to see along the way.
Right behind the Visitor Center was the trailhead for Fairy Creek Falls. It was a 4km round trip through a dense lush forest. The lady at the Center suggested I make noise because black bears have been frequenting Fernie the last little while. I did as she suggested and also carried bear spray in my hand.
Almost six hours later and 23.5km, I landed back at my home away from home. I decided I wanted to stay another day, so before going to my room, I checked to see if I could stay another night and they confirmed my room was available. I went to it, took my socks and boots off, put my feet in the tub that I filled with cold water and it felt so good. My feet were sore and tired! But I wasn't! I relaxed for about 45 minutes then cleaned up and went to The Curry Bowl for dinner. It was a house turned into a sweet restaurant.
I enjoyed a glass of red and watched the people and traffic out the window while I waited for my curry chicken dish.
After dinner, once again, I went down to Annex Park and walked for an hour enjoying the reflections.
I carried my GPS today as I was curious as to the distance I would cover.
