We had been looking forward to this long weekend for months. And all week, I checked the weather forecast like an addict searching for a fix. And if I didn't like one forecast, I searched until I found something more pleasing. Well, I tried anyway. Up until we left, the forecast was for rain, so we mentally prepared and just went for it. One thing you learn from living in Vancouver is you never cancel plans based on the weather forecast. So away we went...
The first leg of the trip was the hike with all our camping gear up to Garibaldi Lake. About 9km and 800m elevation.
First view of the amazing glacier-fed turquoise waters.
And a few hours later, the final few steps to our camp ground.(next picture taken by Linda Yauk).
And of course, the fancy footwear came out. Now you foot fetishers out there...control yourselves. I'm not gonna lie. It's hot.
After our early meal, we headed to bed. The earliest bedtime i've had in years and i'm kinda embarrassed to say...ok it was 8.30pm. There.
Stay tuned for Parts II and III...
