Default Mt McCrea - Sept 5 2019

We hiked up here 2 years ago but stopped short of the summit because we were tired from the previous days trip. This time we got closer to the summit but stopped because the route to the summit was sketchy above the glacier.
The trail is still fantastic without bagging the peak especially for such a short hike. In 4 km we’re in the Alpine...3 more km to the top.
On the way down we made a 1 km side trip to McCrea Lake.

The road is very good...the last Km is a little bumpy but still better than most FSRs in the Fraser Valley!

BEAUTIFUL HIKE INDEED.

Like those photos of the lake, and that peak with the glacier wrapped near it.

Hiking is what keeps you young of mind and heart. When the going gets tough, the tough get going..............
