Angela came to visit! We had all these great plans to do lots of climbing, and take her on her first alpine route, but "Monsoon June/July" kept us a bit closer to home. We took advantage of the poor forecast to head to the Calgary Stampede and watch the rodeo, then Angela showed us all up at Nashville North with her 2-stepping dance moves.

We drove out to Tunnel Mountain on the Sunday to do some cragging. Somehow we managed to stay dry as the rest of the province got rained on. We also had the crag to ourselves! We spent the day watching as clouds rolled around over Rundle and even did one route with thunder rumbling close and closer, but the only rain we saw was on the drive home. I guess we picked a good spot to "hang out."
