William MyrtleParticipantA group of 7 adventurers from Vancouver set out in the last week of July, 2016 to climb peaks (8400 ft plus) in Waterton Park, by going straight up the mountains – something called SCRAMBLING. A peak a day keeps the doctor away, I guess, or guaranteed to check your heart strength and function. The pictures below will provide a better idea of the week’s activities.Happy Trails,HerbWaterton Lake NP in SW Alberta, on a glorious day in JulyThe team beginning an ascentGetting High in the Mountains – the proper way to get highAlways remember to enjoy the view that comes your way
The goal – climb that mountain straight up – this is SCRAMBLING – no trails past this point, just 1500 million year old sedimentary rockHelmets on for rock fall possibilities – always tread gently and carefully in lifeKeep a forward perspective in all things, but reflecting from where one has come is also instructive
Three old youngsters on the top – a task well done is satisfying
Ridge walking on broken scree at 8000 feet elevation – a cake walk after scramblingSummiting another peak – heaven must be a wonderful placeStanding exactly on the USA/Alberta/British Columbia border – no border guards here to check for fruit in your lunch – with a kilometre drop but a step awayCan you find the wet hikers between the Beargrass flowers?Hail/rain comes quickly in the mountains – be prepared – but enjoy each moment of the changing day – variety is the spice of life
Find the marmot in the rocks – camouflage in Nature
