As you know from a previous post, Meg and I enjoyed an excellent day hike from the Sperry Chalet to the Sperry Glacier. The hike climbed steadily through four levels of waterfalls and lakes, before reaching a high snow field that led the Sperry Glacier.
To reach this last level, Meg and I had to climb up through Comeau Pass, a cleft in the rock wall that had been widened to create steps. A plastic covered steel cable provided protection and balance. Meg was ahead a me, when she stopped and said, "Eric, there is a mountain goat looking down at me. Who has the right of way?" Fortunately the goat was merely curious and allowed Meg to continue upwards. I did get some memorable shots, including the last one of a young goat kid.
