A Trip to the far East, Exploring Americas Hat

We stopped for a snack then decided to make our exit back to the car by climbing the face that was visible in the background in the last two photos. First we needed a little snack.

Ben, enjoying the taste of freedom.

So we climbed up and got ready to drop off the back side. For some reason they have “Caribou Closures” around large parts of the park. It seemed really weird to us though, because Caribou will probably go wherever they want, and it’d be a hard rule to enforce. Silly Canadians…

No Caribou here though

Just about the best spring skiing run I’ve ever had.

    Very funny. I’m Canadian by the way. Just a comment about that bigfoot truck pic you took. You have everything imaginable over there. You have to stop there one time in your life. There used to be by a sex-o-gaz, where strippers fill your gaz pump, but it doesn’t exist anymore. You know a man has to refuel once in a while.

    In the Chic Choc if you go out of the park itself, you can ask locals to give you a snowbile ride a couple hours in the BC to ski untracked crazy places.

      wow you’re right! Sam’s off in India and I doubt he can take care of this now… and I’m not sure where the pictures are living currently.

      I’ll look into it and try to get it fixed. Thanks for the heads up!
