Sometimes our walks do not go to plan! We did not expect to walk along the Elk Mountain trail to Mount Thurston last weekend, but it was a truly gorgeous walk, so I am glad we ended up there. This hike starts with a steep trail through woods, up to the top of Elk Mountain. It then levels off and becomes a gorgeous ridge-walk along to Mount Thurston. This was my first hike near Chilliwack and the mountains near the US border….
