Watching the weather in Banff and Icefields parkway. It looks to be rainy with Friday being a beautiful day. I am taking some extra time here to pick the best weather through this part of the ride.
I stopped at the US Forest Service office for some recommendations for dispersed camping in the Lewis & Clark National Forest. Dispersed camping is where you have no camp neighbors – you just camp in the forest. This is my favorite type of site and this area did not disappoint.
Spent the afternoon laying in the hammock, drinking a few beers, listening to the creek (sometimes with a little classical music).
Lit a nice campfire for the evening, turning in about 10:00. I am noticing dusk coming later. I am high in the mountains and the night got chilly. I am glad to have a good sleeping bag and smartwool base layer.
