Strachan/Hollyburn loop in the rain yesterday. Christmas Gully was beautiful with all the lush summer greenery. Saturated, but it was a warm wet. The greenery is really taking over that trail.
Katie handled the gully ascent very well. Boosts here and there, but a piece of cake compared to the Elsay boulderfield. Same with the NW ascent of Hollyburn.
She may have been trying to coax the sardines out in the first picture, or it may have been something about beagles needing to stay dry. : )
Blueberries were very scarce. That stretch of the Baden Powell between Hollyburn and the parking lot is usually loaded, but it was tough to find any. We both love that little loop.
Second pic is from last weekend. We took zeljkok's advice and finally checked out DePencier Bluffs. That whole side is new to us. We started down below at the Deep Cove Lookout trailhead, visited Goldie Lake, DePencier Bluffs, and then Mystery Lake. Beautiful trail and forest. We both really enjoyed that too. Especially Katie...she didn't need my help with anything. : )
