Introduction and History
|You go through pretty country during the remaining 4 days
of hiking to the Hubbard Monument. The land is relatively flat although
there are small rises varying from a few metres to a 100 metres to get
over, small valleys to cross, plus windfalls and deadfalls, all of which
will make you very glad to put your pack down at day’s end. Add snow
and starvation to the picture, and you can begin to appreciate what Elson
and Wallace went through a hundred years before.
Below is one of my campsites in the highlands.
