Grotto Mountain

Solo hiking adventure up Grotto Mountain – Canmore – July 9. 2706m, 1425m vertical ascent over 5.7km. Hate when a good day turns bad from my own stupidity. This was a  serious scramble up a very steep trail, but I was feeling great at the top. Had a nice lunch, took some pictures, headed down. Made it 3/4 of the way down when I realized my camera was safe and secure back up at the summit… Hadn’t seen a single other person the whole day so I knew nobody else was going to go bring it down. Back up to the top. Now I hurt. On the plus side, lots of animals.
