As we settle comfortably into autumn, I wistfully think back to Canadian wilderness adventures, and camping.
So I pulled this picture up (NOT mine! Lifted from Google images somewhere), of someone camping in a provincial park that I, myself, used to frequent. It depicts a fairly typical scene from the Canadian Shield (Boreal Forest), in that you get the almost melancholic spruce trees, the sculpted rock, and the reflective waters.

Cheers Elshalimo, I do post it pretty regularly on here though (mainly because it reminds of of a wonderful night!).
It’s Beinn a Chrulaiste, looking on to the Buachaille (but you probably worked that out already!).
Got up for around 4pm. Slightly unsettled weather, wasn’t looking good. Tent pitched quickly as the wind was picking up. Wind got quite bad from around 8pm to 1am (it felt like much, much longer).
Then at 1am….nothing. Absolutely nothing. Perfect silence in the tent. Opened the door and it was just amazing. Clear skies and able to see for miles in every direction thanks to a good moon.
It was stupidly cold though (you can see that the tent is completely frozen in the pic above).
I took this one of mrs PF sleeping. Such a bizarre situation – middle of winter, on top of mountain, her sleeping peacefully sheltered only by a sleeping bag and a couple of mm of tent fabric 🙂
The isolation on nights like that is mind blowing (in a good way), it feels otherworldly.

Aye, it’s the T2 Ultra mrsalmon (super light version of the T2, only 2kg).
It’s 4 season and we use it as such, but due to design it’s obviously not first choice for pitching on deep snow/ice/rock.
Cracking tent though, we love it, but you can’t beat the Quasar for when things get a bit hairy.Posted 2 years ago
