Maligne Canyon (2012.3.25)

Bald Hills would not make a full day by any means, so I had plenty of time to do other activities. My mom was exhausted by the ascent of Folding Mountain the previous day so she didn't come with me on Bald Hills. I thought I could lead her up Opal Hills with a possible ascent of Opal Peak however the approach trail is far worse than I expected. We had to post-hole right at the parking lot... So instead of challenging ourselves, we decided to visit Maligne Canyon. This is my second time here, and the ice is thawing and the trail is muddy and slippery. We walked to the 5th bridge, and walked back via Maligne Road because we didn't want to do the entire muddy thing again.
