Devil’s Thumb

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.

  1. Don’t even think about Mount Whyte! This is your mother speaking – don’t even think of Mount Whyte. Looks like you had a beautiful day yesterday.
