After my unexpected and unpleasant trip to Serbia, we were trying to go back to normal. That means – mountain hiking, whenever the weather permits, which meant almost every weekend, since we had really nice summer here in BC.
Our last trip was to Brandywine Meadows, about an hour away north from Vancouver (by car) and about two and half hours walking. Most of the maps we've found were not accurate so we took a longer but easier route up and shorter but very steep route on a way home. Maybe it was a better choice because if it was the other way around we would be more tired, I guess.
But, as I always like to say, it was worth the effort:
There is a glacial spring going through the middle of the valley where we drank the water from, one of the rare occasions because there is a danger of drinking water from springs in BC because of beavers and 'beaver fever' – a parasite they might spread and a possibility of infection. But here you can actually see a glacier where the water comes from and there are no beaver ponds around, it is too high for them, I think.
We planned to go to Lions tomorrow but a weather has changed, there was a rain today and a trail is a bit tricky so we will think about it.
There are more photos of Brandywine Meadows and Manning park where we spent one weekend in August. Camping, what else 😀
