Wow, what a trip! too bad about the crampons/ice axe, or lack thereof. Still that was a great trek and I so enjoyed reading the whole adventure.
So true that no matter how frenzied the hot spots are, like Garibaldi lake, Joffre, the north shore etc, there is awesome isolation and adventure just over the hill. Last week I headed to Garibaldi for a day hike only to find the rubble creek parking area overflowing with cars and people … ugh. Hopped in my SUV and scooted over to Chance ck for a scurry up to Brew Lake and hut. Other than a few guys coming down the trail just as I started, I was totally alone, in blissful solitude, the entire day, all the way up and down.
This coast still has that magnificence.
