Trip Report
To get to Og Mountain, we first had to hike along the Windy Ridge trail from the Assiniboine Lodge area and our Naiset hut. After getting some sublime morning sunrise shots of Mount Assiniboine early in the day, it was nice to walk past it again in full day light. With a plume of snow peeling off it's lofty 11,871 foot summit it looked incredibly huge and intimidating. I would stand on her summit almost exactly four years after staring up at it on this trip - sure that I would NEVER have the skills or the courage to climb her steep NE ridge!
