Mount Kidd
Kananaskis, Alberta
June 13, 2002

Mostly a slog with limited views during the ascent. We should have done it
earlier in the season when snow would have made a quicker ascent and
descent. It was 30° on our trip and we soon ran out of water. It's not a trip I
fondly remember because of the scree and the heat.
