Mt. Cheam

This hike, deep in the backwoods of Chilliwack, is known for its 360 degree views of the Fraser Valley and Mt. Baker range. We were not so lucky with the views but the clouds enveloping us added uncertainty and magic to the precipice and the fog slowly lifted as we wandered back down the mountain, affording us views we could only imagine on the climb.

A note on this hike: access to the trail-head most certainly needs a 4x4 vehicle that has decent clearance. Nothing smaller than a truck or large-sized SUV will make it. The forest service road lasts about 10.6 km to the trail-head. 

Mystery Lake

A promising evening hike turned into a bug blood bath. Gorgeous, nonetheless. 

Mystery Lake hike, Mt. Seymour. Vancouver, BC. A place that is inviting for afternoon sunbathing on exposed rocks and late-evening swims, with a short trek in.
