Tis the Season for training

Training for big backpacking trip.
 Summer is approaching fast and so is my Summer Adventure training.  I am going to be riding to Jasper for my fourth time and then I will be hiking for 7 days on the West Coast Trail.  This is the LONGEST backpacking trip that I will have ever done.  And my pack will weigh a ton!

Adventures on Mt. Magnus

Vinje Grind - Mt. Magnus

Eleven hikers went on the Saturday, June 1st hike to Mt. Magnus led by 80+ year old Don.
On the drive out, we saw at least 8 bears/cubs!
Instead of having to have to take off boot to walk through the creek, Don drove those who chose not to walk across it, in his truck.  He then drove further up the road until he could turnaround.  It was nice not having to walk all the way up the road.  We then continued on foot up to the ridge.  It's a steep but short climb to get to the Alpine.  As it is the first to be snow free in the area, it's a great early season hike!
