Bow Peak, Canada - 1st August 2015

By: smaug

Hi Galiya apa,

today, at last, we headed back to mountains again :). The drive was a bit long so we decided not to disturb smaug and took a couple of hours long nap ;). When we woke up, we found ourselves facing the first challenge of the day, wading across the Bow River at the outlet of Bow Lake :stare:. The water seemed way too deep and fast for little TVs so we decided to let smaug get wet up to his knees and retired inside the backpack :rolleyes:. The fact that all our flying friends opted to use their wings instead was a bit concerning, but somehow we made it to the other side ;).

And the view of the lake was really nice :).

Later we reached the lovely Crowfoot pass...

...where sammino told us that real TVs are not satisfied with just reaching a pass, so we were heading for the summit of Bow Peak up there :stare:.

With a little effort, we reached the summit safely, and the view was spectacular :D. We could see Bow Lake,...

On the way down we took a look from above to the lovely meadows of Crowfoot Pass :).
