Garibaldi Lake 28/09/08

Carollyne at Garibaldi Lake:
“Nine familiar and new Wanderungers had a great hike to Garibaldi Lake and Taylor Meadows in sunny, crisp and exceptionally clear weather. A Helm to Rubble Creek trail run was just finishing when we got there, making the parking lots almost full. A few glowing runners were still on the trail for the first 30 minutes, but there was enough room for everyone. There were great views, including from the Barrier viewpoint. No snow was seen at the lake level or on Black Tusk, although Panorama Ridge had a heavy dusting of fresh snow. Two backcountry hikers who had been up to Helm Glacier said it was very icy, but it looked beautiful from the lake. There seemed to be more backpackers than day hikers – busy but not crowded. Fall colours made up for the absent flowers. An exceptionally good day with great company.”
