Crossing Wapta

Mackie breaks trail across the Wapta Icefields.

 

Ahead is the col that leads through to Balfour Hut. Behind and to the left we have ascended the glacier from Bow Hut. To the right, Mt. Gordon, and to the Left, Mt. Olive and Mt. St. Nicholas. The snow is cold, soft and perfect...

 

On request I submitted three articles to a small outdoors magazine telling the story of our little trip across Wapta. You can read them (photos included) on my website below:

Day 1: Bow Hut or Bust

Day 2: Gordon Gauntlet

Day 3: Yoho Dreaming

 

Check out more photos and stories on my website, Wanderlust.
