Cliff Kopas fell in love with the "wild country" when he was a boy, and he never got over it. Here are stories and photos from four memorable pack trips he took in the 1920s and 1930s, compiled by his son Leslie.
In his teen years, Kopas and a buddy packed out from the Chilcotin to Banff and Lake Louise. Later, Cliff and his young wife accompanied medics to remote Ulkatcho Indian settlements, where they met Clayton Mack, the famous Nuxalk hunting guide. In the third story, on horseback in the dead of winter, Kopas and Mack face howling snow and howling wolves. In the last story, three travellers in Tweedsmuir Park confront wasps, wind and grizzlies.
