trip report by site editor Rick McCharles
Nine of us made it to the top of Nub peak for the solar eclipse.
Three hiked up on the Assiniboine trail because Sunshine Meadows was still under closure.
Six took the helicopter in from Shark trailhead.
Happy hour at Assiniboine Lodge was 4-5pm.

Great trip. The big downside was the hike out.
I told the group we’d be 8-9 hours on the 26 km hike out via Wonder Pass & Bryant Creek. I’d forgotten about the extra 2.5 km to the campground. Due to missing signage at the Wonder Pass turn-off we got lost for another hour or more. In the end it was 32.2 km for the day.
Everyone except for myself suffered a lot of foot pain.
In retrospect I wished I’d scheduled one night in a campground on the descent.
