Mount Field
Yoho National Park, B.C.
July 20, 2005

Mount Field is a straightforward scramble yet on our first attempt, Dinah and I turned back because of snow just below the summit in September 2003.

Having underestimated this "easy scramble," Dinah and I returned, along with Carolyn, to climb the mountain when it was in optimum conditions. Not surprising, in dry conditions it was an easy scramble. Although the scrambling was brief and uninspiring, Mount Field offered fine alpine views.
