Managing Workplace Emotions
You can't change conflict and opposing points of view in the workplace. You can, however, change the way you react. Become more emotionally aware, harness your emotions and express them positively with control, confidence and composure.

Mountain Surprise

Temple and Haddo from Saddleback Pass

The sun shines, almost and the up trail beckons

No sign of our pass it is tucked out of sight on the right

The view of Aberdeen on the way up the pass

Near the top of surprise pass. How come the photos don't look as steep as it was?

Sweating it out to the top followed by my trusty photographer, Clive

The four young dudes whose trail we followed dissappear into the abyss while I contemplate premature death.

Surprise - where is the waist deep powder? It is wind blown crust.

Further down it is breakable crust

Looking back up to Surprise Pass

Man this is big country.

There is Lake Louise, still away down there.

Yeah I survived and now have bragging rights. You can just see the pass. I haven't figured out how to put an arrow on my photos. But it is up there above that little wispy cloud amongst those jagged peaks. WOW!
