Radiant Rhondda

With blue skies & spring sunshine comes early morning starts.  After multiple 4am wake-ups, Peter and I were feeling a little sluggish this morning.  We settled on summitting Rhondda (located on the Wapta Icefields) for an easier day.  It totalled 28km and 1200 vertical meters (plus a few sections of jumping on rocks across the creek).

Rhondda ended up being the perfect recipe for a completely satisfying day.  We had the whole entire area to ourselves.  We did not see one soul on the approach, at the Bow Hut, or on the glacier.  The skies were clear sending down glorious rays of sun to warm our faces.  The air was calm.  The place was completely still and magical.  Peter so perfectly coined it as “a sidewalk in the sky.”
