By the time the Hangover Hash-Dog Hash segment of the Calgary hash's Stampede weekend rolled around at 11 a.m. Sunday, River Cove in Kananaskis Country was pretty much a proverbial ghost town. No signs of drunken silliness. No bawdy songs echoing in the trees. No one left lingering at a campsite in a stupor. And best of all, no one eaten by a bear.

No, life in the idyllic setting along the fast-running and cold Elbow River had pretty much returned to some sense of normalcy -- which was pretty amazing, considering that 50-something hashers from all over the place converged on River Cove for a weekend of beer, food, running, walking, bushwhacking and more beer. They traveled to 10 kilometers west of Bragg Creek from nearby Calgary, but also Red Deer, Edmonton, British Columbia, Redwood Meadows and even El Paso, which apparently is somewhere in West Texas.

Here are some snapshots and questions about the Stampede hash weekend:
