Mount lorne Horseshoe

Last Sunday dawned perfectly, and after wasting Saturday working on our boat, I felt driven to get into the alpine.
Michelle had run leg 8 in the Klondike Trail of `98 Road Relay the day before, but being the machine she is, was willing to make the most of a promising fall day.
We grabbed the hound, headed off, and were cruising up the trail to Mount Lorne by 9 AM.











The day was perfect, and I do mean perfect.  Warm, very little wind, stunning colours; the best day of the fall I think.












We were on the summit by 1 PM.

Kona was mega-energized all day, hence the leash












The route traverses the summit ridge from left to right












Marsh lake in the distance












Its a shame we only get 3-4 days of fall












We arrived home after 8 hours out, and headed off to the Edgewater for a well deserved pint and a burger.
We are currently getting packed up for the fall Moose hunting trip.  More to come later.
