I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

comment When (if ever) do backcountry campsites in the major Canadian national parks in the Rocky Mountains grow quiet?
@Amine I'm sure there is such a decrease, and I'd also expect the backcountry to be more crowded in summer than in winter. The information centre is closed only 1 November to 4 December, but that's a bad time for backcountry hiking. One person (who had a bad experience in Banff during the peak season, due to the crowds) told me that it should get less crowded after Labor Day (as schools are starting), which makes sense, but maybe more so for the frontcountry (more families?) than the backcountry...

@BenCrowell If I understand correctly, that's not permitted. In Jasper National Park, backcountry camping is only permitted on designated backcountry campsites, as I understand it...

I've never caved, but a rope seems wise to take along.
