Stellar conditions over the long weekend! After a few years of multi-day self-supported trips, we opted for the relative luxury of Tyax Adventures back-country camps.
A photo essay of our Triple Pass weekend.
Day 1: Flew into this lake
You know it's adventure when Dale asks you to report back on the trail conditions out here for his upcoming trip
Headed up over a pass less travelled
And back down the other side
To spend the night at the camp just past this lake
Day 2: Under 2 hours until we were back up in the alpine
The views did not disappoint!
Why yes, it does ride well 'backwards' - told you so!
Despite the gunshots after dark, we had a great night at the camp near this lake
Day 3: Stole a page from Clark and TwinOne's play book - thanks for the beta guys!
Made our way up this valley
Up to this blowy pass
Then kept on trudging up
And up… (OK it wasn't that much up, it was just so amazing we stopped like every 5 seconds to take pictures)
And then we rode down
And… OK, you probably get the picture by now. Those backcountry camps sure make it fun to do some creative big trips!
3 days, 3 major passes (and 1 minor one), 99km, 4200m of climbing, 4400m of descending. I'm ready for ski season.
