Raspberry Ridge

After hiking Mount Burke the day before we were ready for a longer day on Saturday. Wietse and I thought that we would hike Raspberry Ridge in the morning when the snow was hard and then hike Gunnery Peak in the afternoon since it looked snow free from the highway.

Northover Ridge

In September of 2006 I was joined by cousin Jon and brother Rod on an unforgettable backpacking trip over Northover Ridge. We weren’t satisfied with just a strenuous 35km and vertical mile backpack though – no, we were determined to also bag a number of Kane peaks along the way.

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.

Signal Mountain

Signal Mountain is easily done off the Skyline Trail backpacking route in Jasper National Park.

Amber Mountain

Amber Mountain is even easier than Signal Mountain to tag “for free” while you’re backpacking the Skyline Trail in Jasper National Park.

Olympic Summit & Mount Allan

Mount Allan is probably one of the closest you can get to a scramble and still call it a hike! I’ve done this one twice now – and loved it both times.

Whaleback Mountain

In order to salvage the day, we hiked along Whaleback Mountain, descending its eastern nose before looping back to the Stanley Mitchell hut on the main approach trail.

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.
