We left Shark at the ridiculously late time of 21:45 - I had to work late - dashed in over Assiniboine Pass arriving some time after 01:00. Four hours later we were up. As luck would have it we were offered a hearty breakfast of pancakes & sausage - how Zidek manages this kind of feat time & time again continues to amaze me. Still, it definitely beat my planned breakfast smorgasbord of honey stingers and gel. We paid with our time, doing the washing up, I kid you not.
Then off down the trail, arriving at Sunshine a few short hours later.
Total running time - around 7 hours - including 3 hours in the dark!
Definitely one to do if you have a day or two.

|Should've had those axes on Northover....|
|Nice matching shoes|

|Pretty happy to find the truck at Sunshine village. Thanks Anna & Saira!|
