Default Lake O'Hara lucky again :)

So,spur of the moment I decided,I NEED me some Rockies,so I just went

Lake O'Hara has become a very special place to me,and once again I was lucky enough to get on the bus as a stanby!!! Just wanted to say what cool people Nadia the bus driver,and Stephanie the Parks warden are,and they remembered me too lol....I am a six foot blond woman so I guess that might have something to do with it lol
Anyways,there was a 60% chance of sun as Stephanie put it,and I really hoped to skip the rain since I already got a soaking the day before at Bow Falls,and I was living in my Subaru!

Point being,about 200m from reaching the top of Wiwaxy Gap it started to POUR!!! OMG,it was coming down in buckets and the wind was insane!!! Myself and a couple of ladies who ended up being from the lower sunshine coast (small world)made the top and went to hide behind a pile of rocks to stay out of the wind. We endured a good 15 more minutes of this crazy storm and then the most wonderful thing happened!!!!

I'll be back!!!!!

*puts on his Kanye West voice* - Yo, Chris, I'm really happy for you. I'ma let you finish, but Hungrybear9562 had one of the best rainbows of all time.

That's a pretty amazing rainbow and a nice reward for a rainy day!

Glad to see you back in your spiritual homeland. Didn't you encountered a mega storm last year as well?
