Steve Ogle is not just a skilled photographer, he is an adventurer at heart and leaps at any opportunity to scale a mountain or otherwise push his limits. Recently he pitted himself against Mount Assiniboine, summiting alongside writer Andrew Findlay, Findlay’s brother Peter, and friend Chad Sayers. Ogle’s images appear with Findlay’s account in “Assiniboine ascent,” in the Fall 2014 issue of British Columbia Magazine. Here we share a few more bonus images from the successful excursion.
