Solo 3-day backpacking hike in the Canadian Rockies

Solo 40 km backpack hike to Howse pass in Banff Park, Alberta. This is an abandoned fur trading route. I show tricks for making life easy in the wilderness. The trail was in such bad shape, with so much deadfall, that I had to abandon my attempt to reach the pass. Check out Brian Patton’s blog on this trail at: http://canadianrockiestrailguide.com/howse-pass-the-disappearing-trail/ He’s one of the co-authors of my favorite hiking book “The Canadian Rockies Trail Guide”.

Best part of making these video (other than the hike) is matching music. For this video I used:

1:50 Instrumental version of Madonna’s “Amazing” found on YouTube.

7:20 Instrumental version of the Tragically Hip’s “Wheat King” found on YouTube. The Hip are an amazing Canadian band from Ontario.

15:10 Instrumental version of Collective Soul’s “Shine”. Done by Nick Scott. He’s on YouTube as Ambonick1 (https://www.youtube.com/user/ambonick1)

19:20 Instrumental version of U2’s “Bad”. Great song by an even greater band.
Video Rating: / 5

I love your style of presentation – very relaxed, down to earth. I just started watching your video for the first time and I feel like I've known you a long time. Nothing fancy, just the basics. Good pacing and reflections on your observations. Surprising how engrossing and entertaining the basics can be!

Would like to join you this summer if you're going on another trip to the Past. I live in Calgary but would like a little orientation I haven't done much bushwhacking.

Я НЕ МОГУ.

Я не могу, не хочу не дышать

Свежестью воздуха, запахом леса,

Солнечной искренностью малыша

И совокупностью всех интересов!

Я не могу, не хочу не любить

Искренней, родственной, чувственной жаждой.

Я не могу, не хочу я не жить

Там, где я вырос в природе однажды!

Я не могу, не хочу не играть

Слёзы и радость, влюблённые вспышки.

Я не могу, не хочу не мечтать

Грёзами маленького мальчишки! 🙂

Я не могу, не хочу я не петь

То, что во мне заколдовано вечно.

Не танцевать, не творить, не лететь,

Я не могу целовать не сердечно!

Я не могу, не хочу я не плакать

Дождиком в солнце, рыдать водопадом.

Громко не лаять не может собака,

Не существует не добрых лошадок!

Я не могу, не хочу не писать

Новыми фразами, мыслями дождика.

Я не могу, не хочу не искать

Лишь не себя, не творца, не художника!

Солнечной искренностью малыша

Я не могу не любить, не дышать! 🙂

I heard from a local historian while i was hiking that natives had fought and lost there lives at Duffins creek .in my mind when i say the river was talking to me the river sounded like native spirits talking to me and then i came to me they wouldn't be speaking in english , lmao. its abeautiful little creek with lots of fish .

Kick ass. You have been to some amazing places. What kind of hand saw do you carry?
Great channel by the way.

MattConTosh says:

Are you more worried about Bears when hiking alone?
If you got seriously injured do you have a plan in place that would allow you to receive medical help?

I'm considering hiking Yellowstone alone this Summer and just wanted some advice.

johnny jedi says:

DONT HIKE ALONE!!! LOOK UP DAVID PAULIDES WORK MISSING 411 HERE ON YOUTUBE BEFORE YOU GO OUT HIKING !!!IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE !!!PLEASE!!

johnny jedi says:

Dude you shouldnt hike alone very dangerous , you had a little extra protection thanks to the video camera , i recommend you look up david paulides work here on youtube , you'll never hike alone again without proper tactical equipment .

johnny d says:

after I had an encounter with a Bigfoot in July 2018 in Minnesota I don't know if I'll ever camp again .it's my favorite thing in life but it's not worth risking running into that thing again.i just found out last week a friend of mine who has a lake place 1 lake over from mine she said there have been reports of 1 over there as well. at least we don't have any bears that live around that part of the state which is nice to know.
