Yesterday was the first day of spring and the forecast was for sunshine! I decided to head for the North Shore mountains and do a trail that I try to do every winter: Mount Seymour summit in Mount Seymour Provincial Park.
This past weekend was a long weekend in British Columbia known as “Family Day”. The weather was getting better and better, so I made plans with a hiking buddy to get together and head up a newer local attraction: the Sea to Sky Gondola. We would then have access to some great mountain snowshoeing.
For our second training hike of the season we decided to stay a bit more local Eagle Bluffs is a relatively easy, very rewarding and popular summertime hike on Vancouver’s North Shore. A couple summer’s ago we were able to do the “normal” approach, from Cypress Provincial Park. On that approach you climb the ski-hill, wander through a ridge-top forest and then drop down to the rocky bluffs.
