Photos from the 12-Day Mountaineering Course

We just dropped off the last two students to the bus depot so our final course of the 2012 season is officially over. One of the students, Amos, took loads of great photos some of which I've shared here. The team went to a seldom traveled area called Backside Lake. They flew in via float plane, hiked across very difficult glacial moraine, did some ice climbing and peak ascents. Well done!

Where's the snow...camping on a moraine; note the float plane in the background.

Oh, there is the snow...

Happy campers drying out their gear during a class... Matt, Shaun, Tony and Jeremy.

Are those chocolate chip pancakes!!!??

One of the benefits of a late season course--stars and northern lights.

A little ice climbing.

Amos revels in the sunshine and views.
