I wish I posted photos more often on TE, I still have so many scenes from Europe and Chicago to share. Guess it will just have to wait but i'll get to them eventually.

In the mean time, my girlfriend and I spent the weekend on an overnight hike. This hike is called Wedgemount.

At only 7km in length or about 4 miles, its not that long. However its rated as one of the most difficult hikes in the entire province of British Columbia!

I wasn't 100% in belief of that until now. I've hiked 30 km hiking trails in 1 day that were much easier than this one. Wedgemount is almost a total vertical climb in 7km, with an even more insane steep section for the last 1km of large boulders. Very dangerous to navigate, especially coming down, very easy to go tumbling down the mountain onto those boulders.

There were many people whom we met along the way up, who said they were coming back down because it was just too steep.

Needless to say Wedgemount earned my respect!!

The payoff in the end is the Wedgemount Glacier and mountains. I'll be showing you some scenes of that in the next day or so as well.

What's great about this place is that it's only 2 hours from my front door :)

The photo you see here is in the morning after camping out, but in the WS i'll add a shot of the climate when we arrived in the evening.

thanks for looking

PS
As our TE friend John (tyro) has mentioned to me about TE's image quality, this image i loaded on TE seems blurry. What's with TE and its image quality!!! its so frustrating!!!!! I even made sure its the correct size. Please open the image in a different window if you want the real version.
