Joffre, Mount

On the longest day of 2014 Ben, Steven and I hiked into the Aster Lake region to attempt the 11,000er in the region, Mount Joffre. We've been planning this one since May, so it started out as a ski trip and ended up as a snowshoe trip due to the lateness of the attempt. Snowshoes just might be the way to go for this one as it couldn't have gone any better than what we experienced.

Steven and I found ourselves back in the very familiar confines of the Bow Hut / Wapta Icefield approach on Wednesday evening after work on May 7 2014. We were hoping to beat a system moving in the next day by staying at the Bow Hut on Wednesday night.

Barwell, Mount

On Saturday, March 22nd 2014 I joined Wietse and Dave for a snowshoe jaunt up Mount Barwell in Kananaskis Country, just off highway 549 past Millarville in the Northfork Provincial Recreation Area - the same area as Mesa Butte. We left Calgary at around 11:30 so it was definitely one of my latest starts for a winter hike!
