Fortress Lake Trail

This weekend we headed to Jasper for some hiking and camping in awesome Mother Nature!!! We did the Fortress Lake hike up to the the Athabasca crossing, but due to rain (the whole time!), we decided not to camp over, but head back!! Of course halfway back the clouds cleared and out came the sun… Murphy…! After a 30km round trip (+- 7hours of non-stop hiking), we were beyond tired… Sore feet, tired legs, me crying… But it was great & I can’t wait for our next trip!! (Today is the first day that I was able to walk like a normal person!! …) ๐Ÿ™‚ **
