My hundreds of blog posts per year have dwindled to more like dozens in 2012. But, alas, that's OK. Half the battle of running a blog is updating it at least semi-regularly and not letting it die, as happens to 99 percent of blogs.
|Jackson scampered up a steep rockpile at the start of Moraine Lake, near the famed Lake Louise|
|A surprisingly impressive, but very crowded, hike up Johnston Falls, not far outside of Banff|
|Taking a long hike up near the glaciers of Jasper on Wilcox Pass|
|The drive from Banff to Jasper was beautiful the whole way|
|Heading up Sentinel Pass, which took us up terrain that was Kilimanjaro-like at times and ended with steep switchbacks and a view of "10 peaks"|
