A collection of photos from this July....for posterity's sake.  Mostly short 2-3-4 day camping trips within a 1/2 day drive of Calgary.  As well as a few scrambles and hikes.

Thanks for those great pictures. Looks like you mostly need just a tent, pair of hiking boots, a Mastercard, and a following to make one fun memorable happy summer. I also love those potatoes and onions in the frying pan on an open fire.
