Cornice Ridge

Can you say hot?

When Alison and I got back to our cars today, it was 34 degrees – or maybe 35 or 36 – who knows? I can tell you though – it was hot!

And that accounts for our slow-ish pace up Cornice Ridge. There is no way I am going to trot uphill in that kind of weather.

But I am NOT complaining. It was gorgeous and it was a new destination. That in itself is exciting.

The nice thing about starting at Kootenay Pass is that you’re in the subalpine immediately – and the views were wonderful!

What else can I say? Lunch at the summit cairn gave us the best outdoor patio in the region.
