Thank you to the Alpine Club of Canada - for an amazing Artists' week near Mount Hallam in the Monashee Mountains of British Columbia - Part I
August 18 to 22nd, Naomi and I were participants in the Artists's week of the Alpine Club of Canada's General Mountaineering Camp (GMC). For more than 100 years the Alpine Club has put on this GMC - an incredible record. This year the camp was adjacent to Hallam glacier located about 150 kilometers north of Revelstoke in the Monashee mountains. A big thank you to the Alpine Club of Canada and all who were involved in organizing, managing and providing support for the camp.
Helicopter flight into the Alpine Club of Canada's General Mountaineering Camp. Visibility was poor due to heavy smoke from the forest fires raging north-west of where we were.
