Joffre Lakes Hike – Meeting Pikas

Joffre Lakes Hike – Meeting Pikas

Vancouver has been having some truly gorgeous weather this autumn. We had planned to do a hike on a particularly sunny Monday, so I thought it would be good moment to take Marc on the Joffre Lakes Hike.

I fell in love with another amazing walk in Garibaldi Provincial Park. This was our toughest hike so far! We started with the¬†Garibaldi Lake trail, and then continued on to Panorama Ridge all in one day. This meant we gained (and lost) over 1555m elevation as well as walking for 35 km. The thing is, it was all soooo pretty that it didn’t feel too hard. However, because I took a zillion photos, I am going to split the walk…
