Day 23: Banff to Canmore

With only a short day on the cards today, I took the morning off to check out the town of Banff.
I walked down to Bow Falls then back into town. It was a scorcher today!

I left the hostel at about 1430 and headed down to Canmore to meet Wilma. While on the road I met a cyclist from Columbia, dressed in the Columbian national cycling kit.
He and I chatted all the way into Canmore, and he assured me that Froome would win the Tour de France, with Quintana, from Columbia, finishing second.

One of Wilma's friends had invited us over for a bbq and a firepit. It was a beautiful evening, with the sun only setting at 2215.
Long forks with sausages dangled over the hot coals, the conversations ranged from my trip across the country to photographing rocks in Namibia. A very interesting crowd.

We were back at the house and was in bed by 2300, my body collapsing into a coma-like sleep.
