Garibaldi Provincial Park Camp I

October 19-21, 2012:

We hiked 7.5 kms. (3,500 ft. elevation gain) up into the alpine region of Garibaldi Provincial Park (Taylor Meadows Campground, 5,250 ft.) on Friday in the late autumn sunshine.

Just as we were getting ready to go to bed on Friday night the first snow flakes of the year began to fall.

We woke up to discover that over four inches of powder snow had accumulated on our tents.

Here’s the story of our weekend attempt to climb Black Tusk and practice glacial travel on Helm Glacier.

  1. Very good synopsis, Jody. Well done. Aside from the tough scouts, the star of the weekend was Mother Nature.

  2. Hi Jody,

    Great pictures and loved the one of Simon and the sun setting. You had a lot of snow!

    Cheers Anita
