Chossaneering in the Bugaboos
October 8-11, 2022
Choss (noun): rock that is unsuitable for rock climbing, e.g. because it is too soft, unstable, or overgrown.
In late September I reluctantly headed down from the Yukon to explore the Canadian Rockies and Purcell Mountains for about six weeks, photographing the transition from fall to winter. My favorite area was the Bugaboos, where I spent about four days. I don’t know of another alpine landscape that is both more powerful and more accessible. Going in the middle of the week near the very end of the season meant I had the place mostly to myself too.
