Crown Mountain / West Ridge - Early summer
Over night trip

     Date: July 28 2010

Crown Mnt West Ridge

Weather:  Sunny / Hot
Wind:  Calm

    Here are shots taken on Crown Mountain July 28th 2010, the day before Strathcona Park turned 100 years old While Dan (Tekarra Man Dog) and I hiked the West ridge the centennial expedition party took the East Ridge. This was the same route the original expedition party took exactly 100 years ago. We had planned to meet up at the summit but our 70lb packs were dropped at the first lake and we decided to enjoy the ridge and hike the rest as a day trip. Views were outstanding and my new rescue dog Tekarra showed us what a trooper she really is by taking the lead up the North Ridge and reaching the summit first
