Mount Blanca & Lake
Elaho Valley / Squamish, BC Region

After hiking 8 km to the trailhead from the starting point of the logging road, we hiked up 5.5 km to Blanca Lake at 1700m high. The initial 2 kms was pure elevation and the rest was meadows where we met with beautiful fall colors.

Continuing the hike for the next 3.5 kms on some muddy parts of the trail and through boulders, we finally got to the top of the lake. The pristine views are surrounded by many lakes and distance mountains.

After spending about a half hour soaking up the views, we then began to scramble up approx 2 km to Mount Blanca from the lake. Some steep sections and cautious scrambling up on rocks.

In the last 200m, full view of Mount Blanca could be seen. We climbed up the last 100m to the ridge. At 2117m high, the heavenly views of the close by and distance mountains, the many lakes and glaciers are definitely miraculous.
