view from the summit of The Onion

The Onion

This one is a long day, especially if you spend any time exploring the geology of The Onion or searching for "ice caves" along the edge of the Wapta icefield. It fits the definition of a Class 1 scramble. The toughest bits are getting up and over the chokestone and then going up the rock ledges above Bow Hut, to The Onion. The views from the summit are well worth the effort.

Get Low

It's easy to get lazy with photography, and take all your shots from standing position. This month's photo blogging challenge theme prompted us to get low, for at least five photos.
