999 Days Around Africa: The Road Chose Me

Another weekend – another camping/hiking trip. We headed out to camp in Kananaskis. Vaughan, Ryan and myself.

We didn’t have much planned except for Mist Mountain Warm Springs on the Saturday. I’d been there last year, but I hiked in the loooong way. Going the normal way was still a tough slog.

About an hour of pretty solid uphil through trees before we broke treeline and had a beautiful view of Mist Mountain and the area. Looking across the valley we could actually see the spring from here (brown smudge just at green-line), but it was still a good 45minute traverse away.

The spring  and the hike were just as beautiful as I remembered.

A great soak on a great sunny day.
