Mount Elphinstone (May 2015)
We knew it would be a steep one, but the weather looked promising and my guest seemed to be a good hiker. The forest in the Mount Elphinstone area is very interesting and the tall Douglas firs and lush bushes would let us forget the challenging steep trail. With glimpses to the peak we could see the clouds moving in and when we arrived on the peak, there was thick fog around us. We sat down to our lunch, a little bit disappointed but nevertheless happy to be on the top. All of a sudden, the clouds opened up and we could see down to Howe Sound and to Vancouver Downtown. A real reward for all the sweat. Since my guest was such a fast hiker, we decided to add the Langdale Falls to our hike.
