Trip Report

After scrambling Mount Kent the day before I was up at 04:30 on Thursday, September 30 2010 to spend a few solitary days in the Lake O'Hara region of Yoho National Park. Of course, I realized that I would not be alone in this beautiful area, but I needed a few days of peace and meditation before starting a new contract and getting back to the real world again.

Fantastic pictures - glad you had a good few days with the larches!

I hiked Schaffer and the Opabin Plateau in 1983 when I was 16. Your magnificent photos bring it all back. I fell hopelessly in love with Lake O'Hara and its surrounding then, and I hope to return one day. Thank you!
