Three Sisters Pass
On 26 May 2001, Dan Millar, Kelly Wood, and I hiked
up to Three Sisters Pass near Canmore, Alberta. The toughest part
of the hike was getting past a small canyon that was choked with snow and
avalanche debris. With meltwater running beneath the snow, the canyon
was treacherous to navigate and required a bit of scrambling to bypass
it. Despite the generally good weather, the pass was cold and windy.
Therefore, we passed up on exploring the nearby ridges and opted instead
to have a quick lunch and return to our car.
