Lindsay Lake 20/07/08

Maia on the Lindsay Lake loop:
“Pablo, Ilia, Jeremy, Justin, Noman, and Maia started from Buntzen Lake with with a bit of an uphill workout (1000 m elevation gain) which is then rewarded with a series of stupendous and varying lookouts showing Mount Baker, downtown Vancouver, Deep Cove, Seymour Peaks and much much more. We were very surprised to hit a number of patches of snow, but they were nicely packed and not challenging. The first little lake we hit was Jessica Lake – still half covered with ice and snow – and then Lindsay Lake. From there the way back went along gurgling little rivers and another 5 or 6 cute little lakes. The descent seemed more challenging than going up, mainly because many of us were impatiently looking forward to a dip in Buntzen Lake. After about 7 hours of rewarding hiking, the swim in the almost tepid water and the gelato at the exit of the park made us feel really spoiled. It was the first hike I organized with Wanderung and … I am going to do it again!”
