But R and I do far off very well! This next destination was part of the few words of advice we received. It would be 3.5 km to Frozen Lake and this is where we made significant elevation, with parts of the trail being straight up. At times we were bent over leaning to the ground to maintain our balance and almost in a crawl-like posture to make progress up the side. At the end of the hard part the colorful larch trees spread apart and presented us with a most beautiful turquoise Frozen Lake at the base of Mount Fox. Mount Fox was named by John Palliser for a member of the Royal Geographic Society in the 1800's. The sun shone at times on the water to make it look sparkly and crystally! What a feast! Not only did we experience a feast for our eyes, what is a hike without a coke and two bite brownies!
Today I took a tumble and many stumbles. I came away with scratches and scrapes and a bent pole and without my camelbak sipper and pole baskets. I have no idea when along the route they went missing! We came away with the experience of a new adventure along a new trail, with a sense of peace and serenity never seeing another single soul during the whole six hours and thirty minutes. How often do you get to stand in two provinces at a split second in time! We did today! With only a map and R’s map reading skills and her great sense of direction, with a few words of advice, we were able to unbury a hidden treasure!
