I am so happy it's summer again and we can head off to the mountains to go hiking again. We haven't been since November, and it truly felt like way too long. We are so lucky to live so close to the mountains, people come from all over the world to come here and we're just a 3-4 hour drive away. We went to Canmore to hike Ha Ling Peak for Mr. Duke's birthday and it was so fun. 

Hike: 7 km there and back
Elevation: almost 800m gain, it's straight up basically the whole way up, it's challenging.
Time: Took us about 1 hour 45 minutes to the top, hung out there for about 30 minutes, and then an hour and 15 down. 

Can we talk about dukes expression  here?! We were almost at the top, and he is clearly SO over it. Little baby boy, I had to carry him the last little way, but he was very into it most of the way. And especially afterwards when he got to eat ice cream then nap on the 4 hour car ride home.
