An early morning bike ride through the Shark area with our mountain looming far off in the distance.Early morning along the Spray River Trail.Mount Morrison looms high above our approach valley.Branching onto the much smaller and less traveled White Man Pass trail.It's always a good sign when each subsequent trail gets less and less traveled on my trips. This is exactly what we like.A neighbor of the forest warily watches us tramp on by.The Currie Creek Trail is really old.The Currie Creek "trail" goes through valley bottom and crosses quite a few marshy bogs. This is looking towards Morrison as we round its south ridge.I love Alberta "bushwhacking". So pleasant - especially when compared to BC's hellish undergrowth!Despite the avalanche debris, the drainage was pretty straightforward traveling.Looking south towards the very impressive Mount Currie and down our avalanche gully.Hard avy debris in the ascent gully.[Ascending some slabs with the south / west aspect of Morrison visible above.We passed through a surprisingly dense little grove of trees.Lovely alpine hiking with our ascent slope rising above.The sublime alpine meadows between Byng (L), Owl (C) and Morrison (R).Up close the slab is visible and very welcome.A mama goat looks down on us from the south ridge.Looking towards Owl Peak's false summit from our ascent slope.The camera is going to be overheating for the next few hours! From L to R is Currie, Red Man, Byng, Assiniboine and Magog.
