HIKING — Sorry I've been a bit out of touch this week. My wife, Meredith, and I had to focus on what we were doing:  Above Lake O'Hara, Yoho National Park, British Columbia.

If you've been waffling on whether to go backpacking into the high country this weekend, get over it. Go!

The nights are cool, the days are perfect, huckleberries are ripe and the crowds and bugs are gone!
