I'm going to cheat and choose nine. These are different from the five pictures I would submit for the calendar. My favourite pictures all have personal meaning to me.
After a fall while I was out by myself on Hollyburn one night learning how to ski. Nothing is more peaceful and quiet than being out by yourself on a calm night in the dead of winter. Sometimes it is easy to forget just how quiet it is until you stop moving.
On the way up Mount Matier in an ACC Basic Mountaineering Course. This was my first time traveling on a rope on a real trip.
Starting out on a hike from Tenquile Lake. The meadows were rich and the sky was blue; a stark contrast to the rocks, snow and clouds that are often encountered in the mountains.
Standing atop Mount Siyeh in Glacier National Park (US.) This is our first 10,000 foot peak.
Filtering water at a lake below Mount Seton. It's amazing how isolated you can get and how self-sufficient you need to be on any two-day weekend trip from Vancouver.
Enjoying the North Shore on a foggy day.
The night sky with Locomotive Mountain on the right.
I went up to Mount Strachan to try to catch some good colours created by some early season wildfires. This is Sky Pilot which remains on the to-do list.
Black Tusk as viewed from Cypress Peak. From this vantage, I believe that the gap between the false summit and true summit is very clear. We'd get to the false summit later in the season. It was great to accomplish that scramble since I had turned around in a previous attempt.
