I was one of the fortunate ones to have summited today! I knew it when I arrived exhausted, a short distance above tree line, to a wide open space and I turned around and saw this! It took 5:13 (includes a 20 minute break along the way) to arrive here, only covering 3.7km and 560 meters of elevation. When it was looking like we were not going to reach the top, it was a view like this that I wanted now more than anything!
After all the hard work and snow play, here I am at my summit place!
Now we had nothing but a quick downhill ahead of us. What took us 5:13 to ascend only took us 1:25 to descend. I was happy the hard work was over and now we could celebrate! Thank you for safely getting us off the slippery Smith Dorien into Canmore for our earned reward. My hat goes off to you also for your cautious driving in blizzard like conditions the majority of the way back from Canmore to Calgary!
We live to play another day!
