Another Chilliwack alpine loamer - July 24, 2009

Words and photos by Lee Lau unless otherwise noted.

Trevor and I took three never-evers to the church of loam in whack-a-smack Chilliwack. Chris, Iori and Trevor got the best of all possible worlds as the hike up was in the clouds; yet the later morning sun burnt through and gave us the usual stunning views. An 8.15 am start meant that we didn't see many people on the trail and were down in good time to carry on with the rest of the day.
