Trip Report

On Sunday, February 7 2016 I finally managed to get out to Abraham Lake along Hwy 11 in David Thompson Country for an attempt of Mount Michener - something I've been planning to do for a few years now. Originally Doug Lutz and I were planning to take Friday off for this venture, but thanks to 100+ km/h forecasted winds, we canceled our plans and worked instead.

Great pics as always...Thx for posting Vern... The mountains great, but also nice to see part of the country getting winter with the weird weather we're having in Ontario this year

Thanks for sharing. Having never walked across the frozen lake, I'd be hesitant. That channel in the side of the lake looks like it's from another world!

Great read and stunning pics. I am wondering about a summer time ascent. Do you have to bring a canoe??

Thanks Mike! Yes, you would have to boat across Abraham Lake. Waves could definitely be an issue!
