This amazing snickers bar!

Hi self,  It's 2012 right now and I'm obviously 16 years old. My hand's shaking so bad I can barely write. I'm about to eat this amazing snickers bar. I just climbed the Golden Staircase, and reached the f***ing summit. It was a lot different than all of the other stuff I've done. I don't know where I'll be a year later right now but I hope it's somewhere good.  P.S. I love you self!

In honor of a great man

I write this in honor of a great man. A great-grand-father to my dear children. Born July 1,1917, passed away today: July 1,2012. A Historic moment for a fine family. Sad profound news to be learned by way of satellite phone. A call from the edge of the country the top of this mountain pass made on modern communication. And now I know he has left this earth shortly after celebrating his 95th birthday. And the world is a little lonelier today. Fare thee well.

Hot tea with Southern Comfort

Wildflowers blooming in the snow - an eagle soaring in the fog - cold wind- beautiful vista - rocky, rushing creeks - hot tea with Southern Comfort - granola bars -  looking forward to a hot shower and my warm be - do the trail again sometime.

Canada on Canada Day

I remember my sore feet, catching up with my brothers, sisters, nephew and nieces and missing my wife. The scenery was grey and misty, the wind pushed us up over the summit. We arrived back in Canada on Canada Day. Being herded the whole way.

Boardwalk, settlers and tents

The first day was very long but so cool! When we walked on the boardwalk in some parts the water would come up onto the boardwalk. The first night we played settlers and when we finished there was 6 other tens right by ours and there were tents an inch away. 2nd day we saw 2 people who were trying to redo the goldrush. The golden stairs where long and we had to get up at 5 but we got up at 3!

Soupe du chocalat chaud

Les escaliers d'or sont très cocheux mais quand on est arrivé au sommet on a mangé de la soupe du chocalat chaud.

Love the flowers, especially

If God leads you to it, He'll see you through it! Whit the grace of God, I was able to complete the Chilkoot! Thanks, God for the gorgeous scenery on this trip - love the flowers, especially.  Blessed to have met such wonderful people who shared the trail. Blessed to have 2 wonderful friends to share the total experience. Blessed to have the health and ability for this trip. Wonder what has happened by the time I receive this back.

Snow, friends and wool socks.

Another day in the North. Embrace the good! Honor, challenge, laughs, delirium, snow, friends and wool socks.
