Mysteries of the North

Nancy Hansen, the NewsNet editor for the Alpine Club of Canada, spotted this unusual climber car at the parking lot for Bugaboo Provincial Park on July 23. This stretch limo drove some 40 kilometers of logging roads to park at the trailhead for the granite spires of the Bugaboos. (The posts around it support wire fencing designed to keep porcupines from gnawing on hoses and tires.) But what climber-celebrity began the rugged approach to the Bugs in such style? David Lee Roth? Arthur Sulzberger Jr.? Tom Cruise?

Inquiring minds want to know.
