The second day of a trip to Canada. This is a hike beginning in Waterton Lakes N.P. in Alberta, but it’s mostly within Akamina Provincial Park in British Columbia.

Mt. Cleveland

Friday, August 5th, 2005

Mt. Cleveland, at 10,466 feet, is the highest peak in Glacier. I hadn’t given a lot of thought to climbing it until some coworkers said they had asked off to do it one week, so I arranged my schedule accordingly. It was definitely one of the more memorable hikes, for better or worse (read on for the full story). It’s a long hike, and we got back kind of late, but it was well worth it.
