plenty of room for Pete and me with our
belongings as well. We hung the food up on
these poles in case some gophers or other

rained at all.

The next day I was so sleepy I couldn't

and then after lunch we decided to go further

a little lake, Eiffel and Pinacle Peak on
one side & Sentinel Pass between Pinnicle
and Temple and then to the west east the
Bow Valley and Castle Mountain. We loved
