We decided upon a route where we could hug the Huber and Yukness Ledges. The ledges are considered alpine routes due to the significant elevation gain, the proximity to cliffs and drops and also unstable hiking surfaces. "Adventure Designer" guided us along these portions of the trail. From all vantage points along these ledges, we had a bird's eye view of lakes, mountain ranges, we even spotted the Elizabeth Parker Hut nestled in the trees in the far off distance.
The lakes came in many colors and varied in size with each being distinct in its own way. Of course, the main attraction is Lake O'Hara itself but one should not diminish the beauty of Lake Oesa, Lefroy Lake, Victoria Lake or Yukness Lake. The lake water is clear and colorful, also cold enough on this hot day to cool your hands and refresh your neck, arms and forehead.
As you check out the next collage, let yourself drift off to these places that I got to experience! I was high (mentally at times too) and I was on edge (mentally at times too). My eyes were full of such spectacular scenery and at times I just had to sit to catch my breath that was being taken away by the beauty.
When we are venturing off on these journeys, you never know what may come across your path. Some things are planned others are surprises and yet still there is the unexpected. If you click on the first photo below, you will see bubbles float by. This was "Sunny D Light's" surprise for us! "Ms D No Stopping Me" brought her kite. Have you ever known of a kite to fly so high from a mountain top? You can't get away from it...technology that is! Well, it is the 21st century so what can we expect. Have you heard of Mitchell Fenton? We now have!
