Garibaldi Lake x Black Tusk

3 days of hiking and climbing. A 35 pound backpack. No washrooms or showers. Eating freeze dried meals out of bags. The most turquoise-coloured lake I've ever seen. Scaling ancient lava rocks with no rope and no anchors. And an unforgettable experience and a huge sense of accomplishment for this first time hiker in Squamish, the outdoor recreational capital of Canada.

The struggle was definitely worth the reward. The hashtag #beautifulbritishcolumbia really rings true.
