I was reluctant to head up the Icefield Parkway for the long weekend without a campsite reserved. I don't do well with unknowns and I don't like flying by the seat of my pants. It's just another step forward in the growing as an adventurer direction. As it turned out, I had nothing to worry about, I had many sites to choose from when I arrived at 9:30am. This was my choice.
I bought fire permits for both nights and picked out a supply of wood to last for two night fires and one morning fire. I had that fire crackling and roaring and sparkling and everything else a campfire does! From the looks and sounds of things, I out-crackled and out-roared those around me.
Not really paying too much attention to anything other then unpacking my day gear and getting my evening gear in order, I sensed something going on behind me and when I turned to acknowledge that sense, this is what I saw!
I enjoyed everything about this hiking/camping weekend!
I finally learned the trick to having a great campfire!
I realize I prefer colder weather camping!
I still have lots to learn though!
