A Canadian Misadventure
One of the most epic hikes I have ever done was a two-day hike to Berg lake in Mt. Robson Provincial Park in the Canadian Rockies with my husband. We were so excited for this trip and meticulously planned and packed everything we thought we would need.
Unfortunately the one thing we forgot to pack was one of the most vital items: our water pump! We only brought enough water for the hike to the lake but had planned on using the pump to refill for the rest of the time.
We were getting really worried once we realized our mistake. Thankfully we stumbled upon a wonderful and kind group of hikers who stopped and let us borrow their water pump and even gave us a few extra bottles to get us through the night and our hike back.
It was an embarrassing moment for us, but we are so glad for the kindness of strangers!
