★★★★☆ (4.5) $149, #47995, S/M, Technical Pack, Electric Orange
While an alpine climbing pack, I primarily use the Ascensionist as a daypack for hiking and everyday use. It has one large compartment separated by a drawstring ‘collar’ into the main compartment and a “top compartment.” (photos below) The smaller zipper pouch on top is great for immediate access items (i.e. keys, phone, wallet)
Arrive ~8-8:30AM, 2-3 hour hike, 5 mi roundtrip
Our day started in Johnston Canyon, a family-friendly hike on a boardwalk along and over the river in a beautiful canyon. It is a little over 30 minutes from the Banff National Park East entrance. The drive there on Highway 1A is smooth and very scenic. While Johnston Canyon has a decent sized parking lot, it does fill quickly so I would recommend arriving around 8 or 8:30 AM.
Hi, my name is Sarah! I am a designer and photographer based out of San Francisco Bay Area. A quick rundown of myself: I have a fat Tabby named Oscar, I dance for Full Potential Dance Company, and am an associate designer at ModCloth.
I’m an avid traveller who wants to share my experiences and insight. I hope that with The Orange Patagonia I can help you find new places to see, know what to pack including clothing or camera equipment, as well as just everyday life in the Bay Area. Because I don’t have the time or funds to travel all the time, I’m hoping to fill in my blog with photoshoots and other stuffz.
I’m open to whatever content you all want to see, so feel free to comment below or send me an email at email@example.com!
