Hiking to reach the Burgess Shale fossil beds and in the mountainous region of Yoho meant long, often uncompromising hikes. Gilbart created a Hiking Log of each route taken that includes terrain, weather, fossils, conditions, thoughts etc. As with Stains and Guts, quickly painted images were again painted on playing cards to form carte de visite. See Carte de Visite explanatory note.

Hiking Log forms part of the collection: Field Notes from Yoho. See also Stains and Guts, and Forecasts.
