My week has been full of orientation and administration since arrival at The Banff Centre. Today, I managed to get some minimal wandering in however. After the daily buffet breakfast, I headed to Lake Louise and joined ‘the masses’ up to Lake Agnes. Then I scrambled up the promontory known as the Devil’s Thumb. Around 200 M higher than the Big Beehive, it grants a superior view, although I don’t really feel like I got away from anything in the end; but is getting away the point? And just what am I getting away from? This is what I need to determine.
