On Top of The World
If you look close enough in the photo, you can sort of see what I was up against. Navigation was 100% harder than we thought since all the markers were gone and we didn't have a clue where the trail was at times. But by this point, we were on a well marked trail. We stopped not too long before sunset to rest and enjoy the view before needing to hurry up and get back before a search crew started looking for us.
This was by far my hardest day hike I had ever done. It was about 18 km in all, maybe a bit more by the end. Next time I do hope to be at the top first and just go for a short hike and enjoy such views as this. Of course, in Vancouver a view like this doesn't exactly happen every day.
