Last weekend we met our daughter and son-in-law for three days of camping just outside Elk Lakes Provincial Park. Two of the days we went for a day hike into the park. It was great to spend the time together enjoying nature and stretching our legs. Oh, how they were stretched…
Here is the map of the northern part of Elk Lake Park. You can see the red line that loops to the north and back again–that’s the Day Three trail. The red line that meanders along the lakes and on in to the left (west and south) is the trail for the Day One hike
The rugged mountain scenery made every step worthwhile. The trail varied from smooth gravel to rocks-and-roots to pine needles to planks-over-bog to…? And the view was different around every bend. It’s an awesome world our God created.
The objective of our hike has been reached at the base of Petain Waterfall. Even whisking the camera out for a quick shot resulted in getting spray all over it. I got it back under cover pretty quick!
