Photos of Hakkoda Trip December 2005 by Serre Che


Preparing the pack before the first day out



Simon, our friendly guide on the climb through great conditions



Rob finding his way through the trees



First drop down. Simon's track left, Rob's center, SerreChe's right



Shadows and light in the backcountry



Rob entering through the "tree cave". Some tight trees indeed. You need to know your way though



Getting out of the tree cave



Top of the cable car. Pretty cold up here. Looks like the inside of a freezer



Our next hike on the menu. We have to break trail in rather deep snow before reaching the top of the ridge
