The Summer of Excessive (Virtual) Camping

My daughter and her family were camping in Jasper National Park recently. They weren’t at Maligne Lake, but I’ve painted it anyway, because the place where they were actually camping had so many trees you could barely see the mountains.

They camped in Banff National Park the next weekend, and were happy to include their ‘Ontario’ son that time as inter-Provincial travel restrictions were lifted.  But the daughter who still lives at home and has been on every single camping trip, has declared this the Summer of Excessive Camping.

She may have a point, and I suspect their dog feels the same way.  But I'm finding that excessive virtual camping is pretty easy to take.
