We really are poorly organized: we had a whole week to decide and now it is time to go, we have not even pack our backpacks neither we have an idea on where to go.
Quickly, we pack everything up, last second work phone call, a long wait and then we still need to stop for some groceries and, obviously, we arrive in Calgary at the rush hour and stay in line for a long time. Nonetheless, we finally reach Banff late in the afternoon. We decide to go to the Visitor Center out of town, in the hope not to find too many people. Actually, we find nobody, but the reason it’s pretty simple: they do not book campgrounds here.
So, we get back in the car, drive to the city center and park, run to the Visitor Center which is almost closing and book the last campsite in the whole park, at the Lost Horse Creek Campground (signaled as Redheart 6), in the Egypt Lake area. We hit the road again and begin to drive towards the area, while we decide what to do before beginning to walk the 6 km needed to reach the campground. We have, infact, time for another quick tour, so we decide to pick the Stanley Glacier one.
