Around Banff — Part II

Monday, October 13, 2014

Almost every day of our trip, we were scrambling to get camp set up and cook dinner before it got dark. And days don't get any longer than in June. There were just too many things to do and see before retiring to camp for the night. Dinner was usually cooking around 9pm, when some of our more elderly camp neighbors were already asleep. After dinner we'd sit around the campfire, wrapped in blankets, reading books with the help of headlamps, and go to bed when our eyes got heavy.

In the words of John Muir, “The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.”

  8. When we were in Banff we stayed up until 11:30/Midnight every night for that exact same reason. At home we're usually in bed by 9pm!

  14. Oh, I will never tire of seeing your travels! As a fellow photographer, I'm curious... what is your post-processing like? Do either of you have a very long process, or just minor tweaks? Do you use actions to make it faster? I'd love to know!
