I Thought I Knew Mountains

After growing up in Montana and climbing mountains all over the world I was pretty convinced that, unless I went to the Himalaya, I wouldn't see mountains that would leave me floored for days.  Then I drove through the Canadian Rockies. I was absolutely blown away.

It's bear season! (We've already seen 2)

Near Jasper, Alberta

Holy Shit! Mt. Robson

Can't beat the dinner or the view

Time to hit the road again.  Just a quick stop in Prince George, BC for groceries, gas, water and internet.  We're getting into the flatter north country now where the dreary winter is still lingering.  Our packs and skis are ready to go as soon as we find a good roadside slope for a quick ski tour to break up the drive.

830 miles down.  1300 miles to the AK boarder.
