Assiniboine Painting Trip 2023

If there’s a place in the Rockies that has eluded me over the years, Mt. Assiniboine. It was a stroke of luck and knowing the right people that made it happen. Stephanie Gauvin, a true mountain person and artist had friends that ran the lodge and so it was. The four of us were off – Stephanie Gauvin, Melanie MacVoy and Charlie Easton. You couldn’t be with better company. We flew in by helicopter on a clear afternoon and I recommend anyone do this….the scenery from the air was spectacular! The valley where the camp, cabins and lodge were located was wide and vast adorned with flaming bright larch trees with a backdrop of powerful mountain ranges and finally anchored by the mighty North American Matterhorn, ‘Mt. Assiniboine’.  For five days we hiked and painted with some memorable extra-curricular activity.  The weather was all over the place which was exactly what the doctor ordered. I love the mountains when it’s stormy. We caught the first snowfall of the season, beautiful blue skies and everything else in between. Below are some shots and vids of the trip.
