Garibaldi Neve Traverse

Alpenglow on Atwell, originally uploaded by RichSo.
Kaja, Duncan, Matt, Elissa and I took advantage of the good weather, and did a 3 day Elfin to Sphinx traverse of the Garibaldi Neve. This is an amazing place, where mountaineers are born. You can always go back for seconds (which I what I did).

Descending down the Sentinel Glacier. I was trying to take a picture of Kaja in the background, but she wasn’t moving fast, and suddenly Duncan did a hockey stop right in front of me. 
Skiing across Garibaldi Lake, Garibaldi Provincial Park, BC
On the last day, we skied across Garibaldi Lake from the Burton Hut, to get back to Vancouver in time for work for two members of the party. It was -24C that morning.
