This small summit is situated close to Calgary and down a gravel road known as Powderface Trail.

The day I scrambled this peak was a fall day. It was beautiful and the air was fresh and clean smelling.

The peak itself is accessed across clear cuts and is gained by circumnavigating a wall of rock by going west. Once on the main ridge it’s only a few minutes for most folks to get to the top.

Once at the top you get views that are of virgin forest and clear cuts. Moose mountain can be seen to the south and the prairies stretch to the horizon in the east.

can’t tell you what art does and how it does it, but I know that often art has judged the judges, pleaded revenge to the innocent and shown to the future what the past suffered, so that it has never been forgotten. Art, when it functions like this, becomes a meeting-place of the invisible, the irreducible, the enduring, guts, and honor.

riendship is one of the sweetest joys of life. Many might have failed beneath the bitterness of their trial had they not found a friend.

uch misconstruction and bitterness are spared to him who thinks naturally upon what he owes to others rather than what he ought to expect from them.
