Trip Reports: Backpacking In The Height Of The Rockies, Canada - July 2016
In July we drove over the border into British Columbia, Canada and headed east towards the Height of the Rockies Provincial Park in eastern BC. The trek I had in mind is a somewhat obscure one involving several hours of driving along dirt forestry roads to access a seldom traveled trail which eventually fades into a convoluted off-trail routefinding adventure, finally arriving at a spectacular series of high lakes in a rugged glaciated basin.
Despite the long and grueling nature of the hike to this basin, we pushed through in one day and arrived just in time to catch a spectacular sunset over the mountains!
You might have noticed that I've been somewhat vague about the details of this location; this is intentional and the reason is because in a mountain range as crowded and over-photographed as the Canadian Rockies, a remote and pristine basin of this caliber deserves to remain obscure!
