The Adventure

5 Best Photos from August with CMH Summer Adventures

Posted by Jane Carswell on Fri, Sep 02, 2011

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:

5: I love this photo because I was lucky enough to witness it all come together.  I was at the Bugaboos to hear Polar Explorer Eric Larsen give his "Into The Heart of Cold" presentation.  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:

4: Earlier this summer the guides at the Bugaboo Lodge completed the lower section of the Skyladder Via Ferrata.  These two guests were among the many who rose to the challenge this year and climbed Trundle Ridge in this fashion:

3: "Gemini" in the Bugaboos is one of our guides' favourite places to hike.  This particular day in early August it was picture perfect:

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:
