CONQUERING HA LING 
On Saturday morning, we headed to Canmore to climb to the very top of a peak called Ha Ling. Ha Ling is 2,407 m, and we hiked to the VERY tip top! The climb was pretty difficult, steep hiking the entire way with some scrambling at the top over loose rock. It took us about an hour and a half to get to the top, taking plenty of “view breaks” along the way, hehe.
Once we reached the top, it was so worth it. Beautiful views, 360 degrees. And you can’t get much higher, seriously. We enjoyed our lunch at the very top and took tons of pictures.
We thought hiking up was hard….the way down left our thighs burning and a few blisters on the bottoms of our feet. On the way down we found a natural waterfall and stopped for a little drink of glacier water. Was it the cleanest water? We like to think so.
It was one of the coolest things I have ever done, by far.
