FirstAscent » My Journey in Alaska


Well, I am finally at my first official stop, Vancouver BC. The drive went well and there are definitely some beautiful views once you get closer to the border. I had never been as far as Bellingham, WA before and that was a really nice area to drive through as well as in Canada. A climbing/biking buddy of mine, Glen, drove up with me to the Vancouver BC area but is heading back to Oregon early Tuesday morning so these first few days will be nice to have someone to get out with. Then from here on out I’m on my own the rest of the way.

Going through the border wasn’t too bad. About a 15 minute wait and a series of random questions: what are you doing, how long, how do you know each other, what do you do for work, where are you from etc… nothing too bad.

From the long night last night (going away party) I’m pretty tired and excited to get a good rest.

Tomorrow is mountain biking at the North Shore. Super technical routes there so stay tuned for pics/vid of a LOT of crashes! Monday will be some rock climbing in Cheakamus and hopefully some snowboarding on Tuesday at Whistler!
