Last year we declared a new holiday – Larch Day – which falls around the 3rd weekend in September. I regret that the calculations that determine the exact date must remain confidential for now. Just as last year, we were very fortunate and the weather and larch colours cooperated to make for a fantastic day.
Earlier this summer we were able to book a camping spot (and associated bus seats; to reduce private vehicle traffic) at Lake O’Hara – a very popular location in the Canadian Rockies. Our camping reservations were for October 2nd – the last night the campground was officially open.
