September already? Wow, just like that we're down to only one more trip for the CMH Summer Adventures season for 2011 and then it will be time to get ready for some awesome skiing.
August was a spectacular month in the Bugaboos and the Bobbie Burns. We had lots of sunshine and little rain which made for great hiking and great wildflower viewing. And, even a few bears.
Here are the best 5 photos submitted by our guides in the month of August, 2011:

I hiked with our guide Lyle Grisedale one day and he took our group to Thunderwater Lakes and then up to an area called Pipeline where we walked along Francis Creek. It was an awesome day that will live in my memory for many years:

2: We hosted two photography workshops in the Bugaboos this summer. One with Bryan Peterson and the other with John E. Marriott. The conditions were excellent for both trips and the participants and our guides got some great photographs:
