BCP411 Pasque Mountain
We left bright and early to begin our exploration of Pasque Mountain. Our hiking party consisted of J2D2, Sleepy Hollow, Reastick and RedRouge (dad and daughter). By mid morning we had reached the ridge and began our 16 kilometer horseshoe journey.
Along the way we stopped at a historic cairn constructed in 1915. Plans for a return 100 year anniversary trip in 2015 were planned.
Soon after leaving the cairn we were snapping photos at the brass cap and enjoying a much need lunch break.
The remainder of the trip continued along the ridge with substantial elevation losses and gains. The final couple of kilometers was a bushwhack through a larch forest with several creek crossings to complete our trek.
Looking back this was a fabulous hike with outstanding views and enjoyed by all. A worthy trip, thanks Sleepy for organizing the trip and OFTH for the cap.
