Corny reference (eclipse) but very apt. Let me explain: Mount Brennan is one of the most beautiful and spectacular alpine hikes in the Kootenays – and we did it on a day of a mystical, magical solar eclipse – and we were in a state of bliss all day (except for that awful bit of rock scrambling – but hey!). So – yes – it was, as the song says, an eclipse of the heart.
I hiked with my two favourite people – we were in love and blisssed out with the mountain all day. I could go on and on about the day – all 10 hours – and after 10 hours of hiking and gaining massive elevation (and getting lost and off-trail) and scrambling and everything, I still rate it as one of the best days ever!
It doesn’t get any better – sharing a day like this with the two people in the world who get “it” and who get me.
I’ll let the photos do the talking.
