Recently, I went with a friend to the Canadian Rockies. Our intention was to backpack to remote locations but an injury prevented that. So, instead we did a bit of the tourist thing and took in some sites that one can drive to. Apparently, everyone else chose to drive to the same spots and we found ourselves way more inundated with people than we wanted. Regardless, it was still beautiful (which is why there are so many people at these places, I suppose). The latter part of our trip did include some solitude as we were fortune enough to get a reservation at the Lake O'Hara camp (which you can't drive to - gotta have the reservation and then take a bumpy 20 minute bus ride). From that camp, we were able to do some day hikes into an exceptional area. Here are select photos from the trip. Click on individual photos for a larger view.
