Howes Pass Trek - 2007

On August 30, 2007, land surveyors from British Columbia, Alberta and Washington State participated in a hike to Howse Pass on the Alberta & BC border to commemorate David Thompson's first crossing of the Rocky Mountains in 1807. After an overnight stay at the Kicking Horse Lodge in Golden BC. we began our hike.
