Just been to the Banff hot springs – like sitting in a warm bath that smells of sulphur, and has other people in it. My legs feel a lot better now.
Off to Lake Louise tomorrow, which is about 60km, and I don’t think too hilly. But after that it’s Kicking Horse Pass, the highest point on the Trans-Canada Highway at 1643m above sea level. Then it’s downhill to Golden, BC, where I’ll hopefully spend the night. It’s only about 75km from Lake Louise but that will definitely be a tough day.
After that there’s Roger’s Pass, which is almost as high, but then it’s pretty much all down hill.
