Scramble: Fab and I camped at Baker Lake campground; we have two dogs this weekend. A porcupine kept coming close to us during the night, luckily we managed to keep him at bay. We did not bring a tent, the leashed dogs were quite stimulated by the visitor; we kept them in between us. The weather was perfect the following morning. We really enjoyed the lovely meadows in full bloom. I left Fab, Winston and Mickey near the base of the snow slope which leads to the north summit and plodded on. Wonderful, scenic place. Now it's off to try Brachiopod! Thank you Fab for dog-sitting. Pictures are taken from Fab's video footage.

Around Ptarmigan Lake we get attacked by marmots; you know I'm kidding!
