Want to know how I can tell it’s spring? It’s not the song birds, or snow melt. Not the warming temperatures or daffodils blooming in my front yard. It’s the return of Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. Every year, a new batch of films documenting epic sea kayaking adventures, mountaineering, rock climbing, backcountry skiing, and paragliding off Everest come to town, and every year, I sit in a dark auditorium and watch film after film of amazing people doing amazing things. Somehow, these films manage to inspire me and make me feel like a loser at the same time. Seriously, why haven’t I paddled across the Atlantic Ocean yet? I’m 33, what am I waiting for?
