It’s called the Munn Creek Pass. Ten miles from the ‘Escape cabins, up the gently rising Munn Creek Trail, to the base of the Pass and a well-established camp. Another 2 miles, over a rise populated by Marmots and Picas, through a moose meadow and up the stiff climb to the top of the Pass – and one can only gawk at the magnificent vista into Willmore Wilderness. No people (other than your hiking companions). No sign of human habitation or destruction. Just mountains and wilderness.
The Mountain Goddesses – Lori, Irene and Brenda – joined me on this 3-night, horse-assisted hike. The Chant family – Richard and Elizabeth doing the horse packing, Jan joining the hikers – packed the heavier gear in on horses so the hikers only had to carry a lighter backpack. And we were able to eat real food!
Ridge-walking, scree-scrambling, glorious weather . . . it just doesn’t get any better! I’ll let the photos tell the story.
Wide open spaces . . .
The little things . . .
And, my gosh, the flowers . . .
A special THANKS to Anthony and Nanette who took care of the cabins and guests while I regained part of my soul.
Until next time . . . Happy Trails!
