Garibaldi Lake

Sarah moved to BC and then I promptly left town for a week for work, upon my return I wanted to make sure that we had a really good weekend. A few calls later to Heidi and Mark and it turned out pretty well! Garibaldi Lake  has a really well defined and marked  trail that is easy follow at night, so we were not too concerned about the 6pm Friday start. 
Arriving at Lesser Garibaldi Lake in the dark

The one concern about heading up on a Friday night is the lack of camping spots at the lake. It didnt look good as we arrived and saw others heading back to the Taylor Meadows campsite. About 15 minutes of searching later however and we were lucky enough to find one!

Some early morning visitors
Are you kidding me!

The classic postcard view
In the meadows on the way up
After a scramble ascent tot he top (bring a helmet for falling rocks) we had made it, what a view! 
The back of the black tusk, not quite as pointed as it looks from whistler
We met some friends up at the top
Sarah and I decide to spend another night
Alpenglow  - a fitting end to a great first weekend away in BC
