This is the summer of excess. Beginning with a four day trip into the cushy Lake O’Hara campground, it was time to drop some coin on another bus that would take us onto the edge of the alpine. The Sunshine shuttle will whisk you up 6km to the Sunshine Village trailheads for a not so modest $25 return price tag. While it is a bit more money than I would like to part with for such a short drive, it is well worth skipping the 12km of extra mileage through the woods. With the money spent, I decided to suck all I could out of the trip, going up on the day’s first 8am shuttle, hiking out to Citadel Pass, and then scrambling up Fatigue Mountain before (barely) catching the 5:30pm last shuttle down. Round trip distance was something in the order of 25km with around 1000m elevation gain / loss / regain. Can’t wait to do it all again (except for the scramble) next week, when I head into Assiniboine for three nights!
