A very late-autumn hike into this area which, apparently, has been crossed off more than a few people's list because of the 'impassable' conditions which exist on the Abineau trail. First off, let's set the record straight: Abineau is entirely passable (it's time to take down the warning signs). As a matter of fact, I would highly recommend rummaging through this avalanche field which covers the upper parts of the trail. It is a spectacle and honestly allows a person to understand the direction mother nature has upon us.

We trekked up the Bear-Jaw trail on a cool, crisp late morning and returned down the Abineau. A little late for the aspen, a little late for the wild-flowers, a little late for just about everything.....Yet the dramatic views from the top override any disappointment we could have felt. Stopped for lunch just at the the confluence of the waterline and Abineau, with Humphrey's overhead, destruction below, how cool. I'm definitely sticking this one away, maybe pushing it into my top ten after a Spring or earlier Fall visit. :wink:
