Johnston Canyon

I went for my first hike with my parents a few months ago when we were in Hawaii. Although the scenery and terrain were spectacular (world class, in fact), the decision to embark on a three-hour-hike just two hours before sunset was a bit of a gamble. The resulting rush across a vast, rocky, volcanic crater in order to stretch out those last moments of daylight was in sharp contrast to the relaxing nature vibe that we had set out to experience. So, when I invited my mom for a hike this week, I was delighted that she agreed to come. This time, the destination was Johnston Canyon, in Banff National Park. The trail is still icey, but that was half the fun. We threw on some cleats and marched up the canyon. It's a fun way to spend time with mom. I hope that I can convince her to go again.
