Today marks the start of my last week in Banff. The story I brought along is improving draft by draft, day after day. This morning I woke early and walked to town for coffee. Later, after breakfast, I hiked along the Spray River, a tributary of the Bow River, which runs through Banff. The photo here was taken about a mile upstream from where the two meet. I forded across at one point. The water felt just a few degrees above freezing.

“While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.”

Martha was the true heroine of this trip. We were up in the mountains within hours of her flight into Calgary. As the morning went on, she developed light altitude sickness: headache, tiredness, nausea. I must have turned thirty times to ask if she was okay. She always wanted to push ahead. Despite the discomfort, she never complained. Her spirit never flagged. The strength of will it took to hike up to a glacier in that condition is impressive. Thankfully, when we woke early Monday morning, her sickness was gone - which brightened the rest of our trip even more. We had coffee and oatmeal before breaking camp and heading back down the trail. Both of us were exhausted by the end, but the accomplishment was worth the struggle. It made for one of the best weekends in months.
