Trip Report

As part of a peaceful and relaxing solo hiking trip to the Lake O'Hara region in 2010, I scrambled up Mount Schaffer early in the day on the 30th of September in perfect weather conditions. After checking out McArthur Lake (stunning) I had the rest of the day to explore part of the so-called Lake O'Hara Alpine Circuit, a gorgeous series of trails staring near the Lake O'Hara lodge and working its way up past Mary and Moor Lakes to Hungabee and Opabin Lakes before looping back around the upper Opabin Plateau and along Yukness Mountain's south and west flank towards Lake Oesa.
