To the Bugaboos!

Summer this year is interviews, field recorders and a dim audio editing screen punctuated by mountain exploration and adventure. It’s a good mix. This week, we ventured to The Bugaboos, a group of granite spires which are a world-class climbing destination.

Cougar Creek in Canmore looked wild and exciting on the evening of Wednesday, June 19. My partner Toby and I were staying with Toby’s brother whose house backs directly on to the creek, and we went for a stroll before bed. The fire department was starting to put up caution tape, and the bank was abuzz with walkers and joggers. Almost everyone wielded a camera.

By 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, the story had entirely changed. As the fire department pounded on doors up and down the street, we heard our names.

“Toby! Jenny! We’ve got to get out.” . . .
