HIKING EAGLE PEAK (MOUNT BEAUTIFUL)

Tough hike!  The whole thing lasted 10 hours for our group.  The worse part was walking for about an hour or more from the end of the trail (past the Northern tip of Buntzen Lake), all tired and everything, back to the parking lot (at the Southern tip of the lake).  Some people got swarmed by wasps on the way down on a tight and steep path on the Swan Falls trail too.  The unlucky hikers wanted to run for cover, but there were too many of us on the narrow path to make a safe escape!  Thank God for us the wasps didn’t continue attacking us, even though our party was jammed a few meters from their nest…

  1. Great shots from Eagle Peak! I have always wondered what it looked like from the peaks around Buntzen Lake. I’ll have to try to get out there this summer. You must have needed a lot of zoom to get that shot of Mount Garibaldi!

  2. Thanks! Yeah, it was a tough, but rewarding hike! I always carry my Nikon D80 with my 18mm-200mm VR lens on my hikes. It’s a little heavy to carry, but with so many beautiful landscapes to shoot out there, it doesn’t feel like a burden. :)
