Almost Kuskanax

First – thanks to Nicky for the first photo – awesome photographer!

Second – short on words and long on pics. We are about to go out to dinner – but I HAD to upload my photos first. What a day! I haven’t seen alpine like this for so long! Who knew that the Kuskanax trail would be so sensational – or that it would catapult us into the alpine minutes after setting out. (I think the steep uphill in 4-wheel drive might have had something to do with that.)

Still, we had almost 1000 metres to go to get us to the top. It was steep – but with payoffs the entire way. In Nicky I have found my hiking soul-mate. In other words, another person who babbles incoherently when faced with mountain beauty. Ahhhh.

At any rate, up we went until we saw this towering peak off in the distance. “Well,” we thought. “Thank goodness we don’t have to go up that!”

Um – yes – we had to go up that. And we were oh so tantalizingly close. I don’t think the deep icky snow would have stopped us – it was the storm clouds that settled directly over the peak. So – a really good reason to go back.

What a day!

In the alpine! Did I mention that I love alpine? If I did, I stated it incorrectly. I adore the alpine. It is my soul home.

It was a good good good day.
