Livingstone Ridge (South End)
Crowsnest Pass, Alberta
April 19, 2004

Dinah and I first tried to hike up this ridge in March but we turned back because of bad weather. A month later we had no difficulty reaching the summit. Given the limited choices of climbing high and seeing new scenery this time of year, this was a worthwhile outing. The hike begins on an old road and then follows a cutline above a pipeline that extends to the ridge.

I climbed up some interesting rock for the heck of it

On our way back, we stopped to look at a ventilation fan from an abandoned mine
