Thanksgiving Weekend Bagging Fever

This past weekend was our Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend. The weather was spectacular! Bagging fever hit many - there was plenty of activity on the North Shore mountains. Photos, emails and text messages were live from the peaks. Here are some photos of our spectacular outings. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

 Early in the day, starting the climb up Brunswick Mountain- Craig and I.
 Working our way up! It's quite exposed and steep.
 Craig and I on top of Brunswick - Neil is taking the photo.
 Heading down from Brunswick to connect with the Howe Sound Crest Trail for more peaks.
 Neil and I on Fat Ass Mountain
Neil pointing out where we are going next! On our way to Hat Mountain.

Gaiters helped with the brush - good tip Craig!
 Hat Mountain's Communication Tower.
 The view!
 The view of Mt. Harvey from the Howe Sound Crest Trail - it's next!
 Going up Harvey - it's steep and exposed!
 Very steep and Exposed!
 Neil and I on top of Mt. Harvey
 Did it!
 3 Happy Baggers with the Lions in the distance.
Neil and Craig enjoying the views.
 The next day, riding in to the trail head.
 Stashed the bikes in the woods.
 Paton, Coliseum and Burwell-having a rest.
 The route down on the Paton trail - steep and gnarly.
 The ride back to the truck -almost dark!
 Day 3 - Craig's Bagging Glove repaired with duct tape.
 Craig doing trail maintenance on the Mt. Fromme Trail.
 Baggers delight - left over Pizza.
Craig and I at the top of Fromme Mountain. It was here that I received a message from Neil - he was going to be late for Thanksgiving dinner - indeed he was - by 2.5 hours. Neil went on a trip up Indian Arm by boat and bagged Mt. Dickens with Ken and Ean.
Well done Baggers! It was fun.
