Hike to C Level Cirque

Ingrid laces up a new boots for the first time.

The Canadian Rockies is as good a place as any to break a good pair of boots.

After a few switchbacks and about 1,500 ft elevation gain, we got a nice glimpse of Canada.

Sunset at Vermillion Lakes

Time passes easy with views like these.

Unfortunately it got buggy and we were hungry for dinner.

Another day of the Canadian Rockies awaited...
