Objective: Burn Energy

We had some energy to burn on our long drive home after Christmas. It was still light so we stopped in the middle of the mountains at a rest stop and went for a run.


Couldn’t ask for a better backdrop.


We were eyeing up a nice virgin snow covered trail but upon closer inspection it was clearly only for skiers. Unfortunately we couldn’t see any other trails at this rest stop, so we had to go on the road. But this little side road had almost no cars on it. It was a significant uphill but that meant significant downhill all the way back.

2km completed


This was near Field, on the road to Emerald Lake, just outside Banff National Park.


Activity Objective: burn energy.
Objective completed.
Continue to next objective.
