Shark – Assiniboine – Wonder Pass – Hiking Trip

My annual fall scrambling / hiking trip took place from September 3rd to the 6th in 2008. Along for the ride was my brother Rod, cousin Jon and his wife Yolande (also known as George for some reason) and Hanneke, my wife. We were all pretty excited to be trying another new area (for us) of the Rockies – the Mount Assiniboine area of British Columbia.

Indian Ridge & The Whistlers

I decided early on in 2008 that it was time I bagged a few of the Kane peaks in Jasper National Park. In the span of two weeks I’ve now completed over half of them! Indian Ridge and The Whistlers were my latest Jasper peaks. I shared the pleasure with two nephews and two brother-in-laws on June 30 2008.

Prairie Mountain

Not much to say here! This is a good hike to take the family on – including the family dog! 😉 It’s only 700 meters of height gain and you can probably go up any time of the year.

Iceline Trail, The (Stanley Mitchell ACC Hut, Little Yoho Valley)

It all started with Linda Breton planning a group trip to the Stanley Mitchell hut in hopes of having a more successful outing than the group trip last year.

Moose Mountain

Niko’s first summit! While Hanneke and KC were gone to Manitoba for a wedding, Niko and I hiked his first mountain on a nice sunny, warm 30 degree day in August.

Cirque Peak

What a day! We dragged the kids all the way to Helen Lake! Actually they did very amazing. KC must have hiked about 4km in and 1000ft of height gain and Niko went about 700ft of gain and 3km in.

Rimwall, The

Hanneke and I always look forward to the days that we get together in the hills. This one was a double bonus because we shipped the kids off on Friday night and attended a Christmas party!

Reads Tower

Hanneke, Jeff, Reanne and I did Read’s Tower in August 2002. The weather was supposed to be really bad but we decided that since we had a babysitter and everything we would go anyway.

Ha Ling Peak

In the spring of 1999 we went with a group from the office. At the time I thought that this was one of the only peaks that you could do without ropes and climbing gear.
