I'm back from 10 days in the northlands. Some buddies of mine and I venture out into the wilds somewhere in the world every Labor Day weekend. This time we opted for the Canadian Rockies, Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park in B.C., to be exact. We camped on the shores of the lake in the photo above. Our campsites were on the far side, just a little to the left of the peninsula you see above. Stunning, huh? And the picture doesn't even really capture it.
We hiked in about 5 miles to this locale, then took day hikes to a glacier and a gorgeous highland area called Saphire Lakes (aptly named). There were eight of us in all. Here we are:
That's (left to right) me, David, Hunter, Matt, Josh, Mark and Sam. Not pictured is Kevin, who took the shot (we tried to get a bear to do it, but...). So just to be fair, here's a picture of Kevin:
Don't worry. He always looks like that.
