Toronto, Canmore, Dempster, Toronto

Best Laid Plans
With any luck I will be leaving Toronto on Sunday July the 15th for a short ride to see my mum in Orillia. She is just recovering from surgery (4wks ago) but if all is well I will be setting off for Alberta on Monday morning. I am hoping to reach Canmore Alberta by Thursday where I have 2 weeks of climbing arranged. After that I plan to ride up to the Yukon and do the Dempster. Then its a long ride home to Georgetown (just northwest of Toronto). Any suggestions re gear to bring, or good places to stay (especially in the prairies).
Thanks
Bill

Maybe this would be a good starting point for your planning:

Your mention of climbing in Canmore brought back good memories of my first rappelling experience in the Crow's Nest Pass followed by a good mountain climb the next day in that area.

Have a great trip. You must be a teacher to get that much time off!!

If your nose is close to the grindstone and you hold it here long enough, in time you’ll say there’s no such thing as brooks that babble and birds that sing. These three will all your world compose: just you, the stone, and your poor old nose.
