Mount Rundle - Banff, Alberta (PIC HEAVY)
Posted 22 April 2008 - 02:45 PM
I just came across some of my pictures from the 6 months I spent living in Banff National Park in Banff, AB. Mat had the chance to visit me once during that time & we took a day to hike/scramble my favourite mountain!! I thought I'd share my pics because they bring back such amazing memories for me & climbing Mt. Rundle is one of the hardest things I've ever done! It was amazing & I am so proud of myself!!
Me looking very happy before we actually started the hike!
Getting kinda steep for the top third of the hike! I was pretty scared!
Me trying to quit almost 7/8ths of the way up! Mat kept me motivated & made me believe I could finish it! I actually had a small panick attack & didn't want to continue! (you can't really tell but at the narrowist part of this part of the mountain we only had a section approx. 8 feet wide to walk across with sheer drops down both sides)
I MADE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There's a nalgene bottle that is somehow fastened to rocks at the top, with a small notebook for recording your name & anything else you want to write once you've made it!
So happy I got to share this experience with him!

I think we're going to climb sulpher mountain this time around - just up the path under the gondolas - that will be a big enough feat for me!!!!
