Hiking The Rockies
I am going to leave the Snake River, Yukon, now. If you want to learn more about my adventures on the Snake, you will need to get my new book once it becomes available. I will let you know when it is published!
Now we are going to see some of the wonders of the Canadian Rockies. This summer I did five memorable hikes in the Front Ranges of the Rockies in Alberta. I will let you know about some of the wonderful things we saw, starting with the last on. This was a hike to Jumpingpound Mountain. It lies about an hour west of Calgary. It is not all that far, but some of the travelling is on a rough gravel road. There is a good trail to its summit at 7,350 feet, From there, most hikers take the west ridge towards Cox Hill, but we took the east ridge. It was a bit of a rough trail, but led to a nice summit (Top number 2) where we had lunch. It was a beautiful fall day.
I will put in a summit photo of Jumpingpound Mountain below.
Stay tuned for my next hike - coming soon!

I have described my first three rafting trips in the book Rafting the Great Northern Rivers: The Nahanni, Firth, and Tatshenshini.
