This made me smile

Cousin Ken emailed me this picture today.

On the Berg Lake trail, Mount Robson, summer 1978

I can’t say that spending the summer of 1978 working on the drop sorter in a sawmill in Upper Fraser, B.C. was a high point of my life.  However a couple of weekend trips with guys from the sawmill, including my cousins Dave (holding the “Wanna Party?” sign in this picture) and Ken (he took the picture), gave me some good memories.

This picture was taken on a hiking trip to Berg Lake, one of the most popular hiking trails in the Canadian Rockies, along the flank of Mount Robson.  The woman and child were tourists from Germany.  As you can tell by their footwear, they didn’t hike the entire trail.  The little girl doesn’t seem to know what to think of this motley crew.
