Kona on Grotto summit on a cloudy mid-June day after ascending by the Bataan climbing wall trail. Summit cairn behind Kona has fallen or been taken apart so we rebuilt it – see below (Canmore and Bow Valley behind with Lady Macdonald at distant right).
Below, nice view of Three Sisters on way up.
Kona on Wind Tower on a hot mid-June day. Lougheed (Peak 1) and Sparrowhawk behind. Kona’s “dad” climbed this Lougheed Peak via the pictured NW ridge in 1982 after taking a rock-climbing course with Lac Des Arcs. Part of Lougheed Peak 2 is jutting out behind Peak 1, an easy but long scramble. Below, view of Spray Lakes and Mt. Nestor on way up.
Below, view toward Rimwall showing upper part of scramble route, Big Sister and Middle Sister behind.
Dog park on Grizzly Peak June 1st (can’t remember their names). Below, Mt. Evan-Thomas, highest peak in Opal Range (Kona’s “dad” climbed in October 1987 when the 1954 first ascent register was still there and mistakenly naming the peak Packenham).
Kona on Midnight Peak in late May. Smoky from High Level, AB area forest fires. Mt. Baldy behind.
Below, Mts. Kidd, Bogart, Lougheeds, Nakiska, Allan, Colembolla
Aura (6 months) on Mt. Hoffman at end of May. Below, Kona with Mt. Burns massif behind. “Burns East” directly above Kona’s ear, main higher peak further to right.
Below, July 19, 2013 view from “Burns East” back towards Mt. Hoffman, at extreme left. (Mt. Burns is not a dog hike although part way up the north ridge would be OK.)
Jack, Hunter and Lamarr descending on upper slope of Mt. Baldy on Mother’s Day weekend. Below, Kona knows what puts kibbles in her bowl. Below, Gus on lower slopes (see also East End of Rundle for Gus).
Ripley (8 yrs) on summit ridge of Prairie Mountain in early May after a spring snowfall. See also Cox Hill for photo of Ripley.
