2016 Badger Pass Pack Trip - 3rd attempt
2 days, which was supposed to be 6 - This was my third attempt to ride up to Badger Pass in Banff National Park, the highest pass in the Canadian Rockies that horses can get over. The first attempt was in 2012 during the Best of Banff trip, and the second attempt was a solo trip in 2015 which was aborted due to wildfire smoke.
2 riders, 3 horses
Once again, we rode in from Lake Louise Ski Hill on the first day in stunning bluebird weather. However, a nasty storm arrived in the middle of the night with cold rain which promptly turned to snow. As it was late in the year and we had two high passes to get over, we decided to ride out. Fail #3. Badger Pass 3 : Tania 0.
