Summertime…and the livin’ was easy 😎

The summer of 2019 yielded many new and spectacular vistas from trails and peaks in the Purcells and the southern Rockies. Notably, we rekindled friendships reaching back half a century.

The 11th annual Bugaboos Teens climbing camp was a success, as was the 50 year reunion of Carole Ruth, β€œHarper” Hartwig, John Bergenske, Kay Forsythe, and in absentia, Art Twomey and Tuck Forsythe who homesteaded in the remote valleys of the southern Purcells and who I (Pat) met as a teenager and was heavily influenced by their leadership in conservation efforts.
