    Speaking of bushwhacks. Does this count Mme. iceNsnow?

    Garden-Shorey Short Cut-Basin Ampitheatre-Basin Slides-Sawteeth-Weld Trail-AMR Road-St-Huberts parking area. (Bushwhacking is in purple).

    If interested it's this Saturday.

    I wouldn't expect anything less from you Neil! We must climb the mts b/c they are there. :-)

    Sat. we have plans so I will need to read your report instead.... but that may take as long as the hike??

    Basin's amphitheater is a pretty neat place. Odly enough it is a very easy bushwhack to get to it, above is another story altogether!

    So there are lists and there are Lists and there is the list that counts which is whatever goal we set for ourselves. How could it count for somebody else, since no one will be able to follow exactly the same route under similar conditions and I have not even thinking of the flies that can drive one crazy while hugging the tender loving spruce trees.

    Flies

    Oddly enough I have only been plagued by flies (deer flies) on one hike this summer.

    Raven (have you read "Mind of the Raven"?), speaking of making one's own lists the ADK46-B is actually nested within my own personal list of 125 (or 128) peaks that is an amalgamation of 4 lists, in whole or in part, each of which using slightly different criteria regarding col depth, distances rules, and whether or not there is a path or private property anywhere on the mountain.

    I'm in the 120's but somewhere around 110 as whacks. Still need Moose, McKenzie, Averill, Lyon and Noonmark as whacks plus 10 of the 46.

    I will not go back and re-do the list from each of the 4 compass points, barefoot, on full moons, in every month of the year, backwards......

    Clearly you are not very serious about this hiking stuff...

    Regarding elevation, it is better to have gained and lost than not to have lost at all.

    I've not read "Mind of the Raven" but may have seen a documentary/interview about it IIRC. Watched them figure out how to use a tool to open something to get food. Fascinating birds. I've heard great things about the book though.

    Sounds like a cool list.
