Currie Creek


 

Currie, Mount

After our trip up Mount Morrison and Owl Peak earlier in the week, Phil and I had been thinking (obsessing?) about its supposedly "easy" neighbor to the SW - Mount Currie. This might seem strange to some folks, but Phil and I don't just love peakbagging, we love getting to peaks that are not done very often and are remote and somewhat challenging to access. For us it's about the backcountry experience as much as the summit.

Morrison, Mount

Wednesday, June 20 was shaping up to be a pretty nice day in the Rockies. When Phil texted me and mentioned that he was going to attempt a long-planned traverse over Mount Morrison to Owl Peak and Lake I was intrigued enough to book the day off and join him on this venture. Ever since skiing Mount Turner in April of 2017 my stoke for Morrison had increased 10-fold.
