Kona at prominent cliff band above the quarry on east end of Grotto April 2nd. Lawrence Grassi, Ha Ling, Rundle across Bow Valley and Canmore behind. Below, view to main summit of Grotto (this high point of our hike isn’t the best approach to the summit, the left skyline ridge via the Bataan climbing area is more direct).
Kona at lower high point on Anklebiter Ridge in late March. Grotto Mountain behind and Gap Peak at right. Below, across Bow Valley view to Wind Tower, Rimwall and Three Sisters.
Kona on the dog route up Mt. Baldy in late January. High Chinook winds and 13C weather. Below on final ridge and summit.
Kona on Yamnuska (Mt. John Laurie) in mid-January, +12C, no wind and hardly any snow on route. Nice!
Kona looking toward Moose Mountain trail-head and road to the Ice Caves in early December. Calgary just visible on horizon. Below, Rufus and Rosie on summit.
Kona on return from summit of Cox Hill in early December. Calgary on horizon to east. Below, on summit looking west.
Kona on summit of Mt. Roberta in late November with Gap Mountain behind. Followed another party’s tracks in the snow to find the way through the treed slopes below. Found a lost bear spray container on way down (please email if it is yours).
