Chris, the Bugaboos and a Grizzly Bear

Chris and I recently went to the Bugaboos and had a great adventure involving lots of fresh snow and a hungry grizzly bear.

starting in the RAIN

It wasn’t too hot or too buggy on our rainy hike up to the Kain Hut : )

a rest before the final leg up to the hut

its not hard to get your pack on the hangar with a meter of snow under your feet

On July 3, we hike up to Eastpost Spire via Appleby campground where there was a meter of snow still! We had about 20cm foot pen in the new fresh snow. Very skiiable.

a wee bit of neige

Summit Photo!

I summitted too!

We decided to make a day of getting back to the car and so we headed over the Brenta-Cobalt Lake Sattelite Spire Col to Cobalt Lake.

Chris said he would of gone for a swim if it was warmer ; )

Then the Grizzly incident. He was not scared of us. There was no bluff charge. He just wanted what he smelled and it was coming from our direction and that was all.

hungry bear

After Chris scared the bear off we got ourselves up and over Black Forest ridge and onto the donkey trail back to the trailhead. Good times.

we hollered for bears all the way back to the trailhead ; )

Thanks for the trip Chris. A Grand Adventure.
