Duffey Cerise Creek, Duffey Lake

Christmas is upon us and what better to do then leave civilization and head to a backcountry hut! We haven’t been to Keith’s Hut in awhile and figured with the upcoming high pressure and Whistler crowds it would be a good place to spend a couple of days.

Once at the hut we dropped of our gear and headed up Anniversary Glacier. Another group that came up that morning had the same idea as us!

Our Tent! Keith’s Hut can be quite busy so we brought our tent. Good idea since the hut was full of farting snoring people for two nights.
