Started my hike on Sunday, August 30th, 2020 at the Celestine Lake Parking Lot in Jasper National Park and travelled the North Boundary Trail (NBT) to the terminus at the Berg Lake Trailhead in Mt. Robson Provincial Park. Arrived at terminus at 2:32PM local time (PDT) (3:32PM in time zone the hike was started (MST)) on Friday, September 4, 2020.

Daily Details as follows: 

August 30 - 8:55AM - 6:21PM (TH to Willow Creek)
August 31 - 9:30AM - 5:34PM (Willow Creek to Blue Creek)
September 1 - 9:28AM - 4:37PM (Blue Creek to Oatmeal)
September 2 - 9:31AM - 6:22PM (Oatmeal to Donaldson)
September 3 - 9:08AM - 5:13PM (Donaldson to Aldophus)
September 4 - 10:00AM - 3:32PM (MST) or 2:32PM (PDT) (Aldophus to TH)

The hike went 1 day longer than planned due to poor trail conditions and a few trickier water crossings due to heavy rains. 

I packed in all food, gear, fuel for this trip. Water was from various creeks and lakes along the way. While I did encounter two groups of hikers heading in the same direction of travel during my hike, they in no way assisted me on my FKT attempt.

I have uploaded my kml and gpx files from the trip showing where I sent my garmin inReach updates to my contacts at home (sent a starting my hike + done hiking update each day).
