Canmore was so beautiful! Stayed there for 4 days climbing with my friend, Alfred, who drove up from Calgary to climb some rocks! He managed to snap a lot of photos of me, which is rare! I'm usually the one taking photos. Canmore is a neat little town, the houses look really nice (expensive too), and since it's so close to the mountains, everyone is outdoorsy. People were going down the road on ski-like roller blades, practicing for backcountry skiing. Unfortunately there wasn't a central spot for meeting climbers, like the chief campground. I think Squamish and Smith are really special for that reason. If I didn't have a climbing partner already, I feel like it'd be a bit difficult to find somebody. It all worked out though. We explored Cougar Canyon, Grassi Lakes, and Lake Louise. I didn't expect to climb 4 days in a row.. it rained some of the days, but we climbed anyway.
I wish I could have stayed longer, but if I do I'd never make it out of Canada! :)
