GDT Day 20. July 25, 2018. Rockwall Trail

28 km Floe Lake to Helmet Falls GC

We had another day of perfect weather, amazing views and tons of elevation gain and loss.

All day we walked on the world-renowned Rockwall Trail in Kootenay National Park. It’s 30km with a one kilometer high escarpment to the West. It’s impossible to always stay close to the wall due to glaciers and rock fall. So we hiked up and down multiple drainages.

A perfect place for a break. And no bugs.

    Hey Nancy! I believe it was you I bumped into and chatted briefly on the Rockwall Trail. Based on my pack you were wondering if I was doing the whole GDT. Hopefully in the next couple years I will! Have a blast heading north.
