Let’s go wash the dishes…and this is the show
So we stop at Kerkeslin Campground and we know all the procedure very well by now, so we go through it in seconds. We take the wood we would need for the fire along the way to the campsite and while we pitch the tent, we light the fire and begin to cook our dinner. At this point, we are already eaten by mosquitoes and the fire smoke doesn’t help at all. We don’t have any bug spray – it will be tomorrow first purchase! We just dress us much as we can and we eat trying not to be eatn too much, slapping each other more than once.
We then decide to have a little walg along the Athabasca River, the river which flows just beside us, which pour from the Athabasca Glacier water we saw little ago, and we still don’t know what is going to happen.
Once we clean the dishes, Attilio decided to shoot some picture with this perfect light – it is almost 11 p.m. by te way! -but he pushes it too far and the tripod doesn’t hold up against the flowing and…SPLASH! The camera has a good bath in the frozen limestone water. Afterwards is just sheer panic and a pretty sad goodnight, already thinking about where to go tomorrow to buy a new camera, since this one seems to be dead.
So we go to sleep happy, yes, for the amazing place we are, but also quite worried and sad, since the wallet will soon be lighter and tomorrow we will just have our phones to take pictures of all the wonders we are going to see.
