Karly survives Canada

Well we survived Canada in one piece! (well most of us!) Karly was not so lucky and yet very lucky to still be alive. While hiking The highest peak in Waterton, Blackenstein. She was attacked not by a bear as you would suspect in these hills but by a huge rock! It was all a little crazy. Those on the hike had a wounded Karly to deal with (who was a trooper) in the rain with no flashlights it was pitch black. Nate who had hiked in from the end of the trail to take drinks and ice to the hikers ended up leading them to the trail. And us back at the cabin were worried sick and had to allert the R.C.M.P. that something might be wrong. In the end Karly ended up with stitches in 3 places on her hand the nail is gone but the nail bed is not damaged so it should grow back fine the tip of her bone was shatered and missing skin so she has to keep it bandaged till the skin rejenerates and the ct scan showed a crack in her skull, but caused no swelling in her brain, and she has blood in her inner ear so she can't fly for 6 weeks. She should be better just in time to make it back to Hawaii for school. So we are thankfull all turned out well
