GDT Day 11. July 17, 2018. Hitching to Kananaskis.

9.3 kilometers

Total GDT mileage: 338.9 km/210.6 miles (minus about 60km missed due to Waterton closure)

I wish I could wake up to this every morning.


We had a pretty easy walk to the trailhead. No one was around so we walked another 2 km to the Boulton Trading Post and got there at 9:30am. We knew we couldn’t check into the Kananaskis Hostel until 5 so we took showers at the campground.

I really need this after 7 days of sweating.

It took awhile to get a hitch but 2 rides later we were at the Kananaskis Village. This was built for the Calgary Olympics and isnt really a village. But it does have WiFi, a very small store, Cafe, a few restaurants and expensive lodging. We spent the day there and ate. I had a beer. And ate again.

Beer and dinner.

We got another hitch down to the hostel. It’s nice here but no wifi so I’m using my Verizon international plan data.

A bed. Yay. And a day off tomorrow.

    Day off and recharge batteries, the human kind I am referring to. Hope you have a fun and restful time in town.
