Default Heather Trail, Manning July 13-15

Wildflowers are starting to rev up. Bugs are out at both Buckhorn and Kicking Horse. Alexa is getting heavy BUT the payoff was worth it.

This morning while playing with playdough Alexa staring off into space: We saw all the Erf (Earth), we went up the big mountain and saw the Erf and mountains far far away.



Yes she did hike all by herself....a few hundred metres


They grow way too fast. [B)]

Was good to get a 4 day dose of Manning alpine in. Sticki Niki decided to join us for the first two of our three nights. We camped at Buckhorn the first night, then the four of us sauntered over to Kicking Horse Camp for the second night. Buckhorn was surprisingly quiet, but it was a Friday night. Kicking Horse on the other hand was nearly full on the Saturday. Bugs were rather annoying but manageable. Got down to freezing two of the three nights.
Wildflowers are just beginning to show their colour and should peak by the end of the month. Snow patches are pretty much gone throughout the area, but water is still plentiful at present.

Shaping up to be a fine weekend weather-wise

Great to see you guys in action, Alexa is much more capable than this time last year. Planning a trip to Manning for some camping with friends in 10 days, glad to see that we won't have missed all the flowers. Any plans to come up Powell River way this summer?

Susied, Powell hasn't left my mind. Just have to find more holidays! If I don't make it up this year, it's on the radar for next year for sure.

Thanks Team LeGros!

Yeah Solo and Yvonne - way to fast.

Thanks everyone.
