Default Hanging out on Gambier

Jul 21, 2013
An impromptu plan to visit Gambier Island was hatched with Ward being our personal tour guide (he used to live on the island so it was cool to get some local tidbits of knowledge).

We departed from Sunset Marina.

Docking at Port Graves, we could see our first destination, Burt's Bluff:

There is an outhouse at the trailhead, and then you're in the forest with no other bathroom facilities (good to know).

After a nice lunch, we headed back down the same trail, then got onto the Lost Lake trail where we had a refreshing swim.

The day was over far too quickly.

The view of the ridge comprising the Howe Sound Crest Trail is excellent from the boat,

Zoom on Mount Harvey and Harvey's Pup,

Nice report! we really enjoy hiking on Gambier and boat over there often to do so. Last year we did a hike from Camp Artaban, up to lost lake, then across the island to Gambier Lake. A very full day, with some strenuous parts, but very cool hike. It's a nicely marked trail with some interesting skid-road logging remains to look at.

here's a link to the report

That's really nice; pic of your daughter walking down the dock, as well as whole family on Burt's bluff is awesome
