It seems like a lifetime ago when I (Manrico) lived in southeastern British Columbia. That was from summer 1977 to summer 1979, several years before I met Liz. I worked briefly in the coal mine near Elkford and taught high school math and science in Fernie and Sparwood. I lived in Elkford with my first wife, Kathleen, who taught kindergarten there.
Many weekends were spent exploring the local valleys, ridges, and peaks with others living in the area. On one early summer long weekend Allan, Brian, Jerry, and I made what we thought was the first ascent of Mount Washburn. At 3,033 meters it is one of the prominent peaks in the area. We climbed it via the South Ridge which we accessed from the Telford Creek valley.
Earlier that spring Ed, Jerry, and I did a sightseeing and reconnoitering flight of the local peaks including Mt. Washburn. Here is the webpage with photos of that flight.
Now the photos which are Kodachrome transparencies scanned in 2021. Unfortunately many of the transparencies have degraded with time even though they were stored properly.
If you expand the photo viewer to full page the “Adventures” menu will stop working. This is because of technical issues with the website software. Pick any other menu item and go to that web page. The “Adventures” menu will then work properly.
