Summer is flying by. In the last month we have been doing more driving then climbing, but that's a necessary evil of a road trip. Our 40-day "Tour de Canada" took us from Vancouver BC up to Skagway Alaska, over to the NW Territories, and down through Alberta. I think we spent a lot in gas, but it's all in liters and Canadian $'s up there, so who knows?

 
 

Since the last update we have completed three more big climbs. The Lotus Flower Tower in NW Territories Canada, Bugaboo Spire in Alberta, and the North Ridge on the Grand Teton in Wyoming. We were going to climb three more classics in the Banff Alberta area, but they were out of condition (too much snow), so we passed right on by. Now its on to the D1 on Longs Peak in Rocky Mt NP.

On the Calendar:
-Slide show at the REI in Boulder on Sept 9th at 6:30PM. All welcome. Its free.
-Reno slide show Oct 1 (details to come)
-Yosemite slide show at our Pines campsite mid October (projecting the photos on the side of our van!)
