A familiar bike ride through the Shark xcountry ski area.Mount Currie is in sight rising at right. We still have a long ways to go into the valley at distant left before tackling the SE slopes.A nice morning walk through the forest along the Spray River.Glacier LilyOur escape across Currie Creek. Right where Phil is the water was deeper than my 120cm poles could reach. And that log is slick too.The trail is faint but the path through the forest is surprisingly wide for most of the White Man Pass trail.How cool is that? An ax-hewn tree from trail clearing efforts a long time ago.Massive avalanche paths on the south face of Currie. Our route went up to the snow patch left of center, cutting left just before the snow and then across 2 or 3 more avy paths before getting into theLots of avy paths to choose from.The vegetation can be thick on avy paths.Steep and vegetated - but at least not with alders.LarkspurStickseedThese Mylar balloons are showing up everywhere in the backcountry nowadays.Looking down the avy slope.A steep grind - White Man Mountain showing up now.We got a bit silly lower down as we were sick of traversing the slick vegetation. We eventually backed off the muddy slabs and traversed further west.Steep, low cliffbands in the gully.Looking down the gully over the cliffbands.A long way up already, looking back at Mount Warre. A better route might be directly up this avy slope from the trail rather than side-hilling like we did.
