BCP774 - Three Sisters
Elev. 1382 metres
It was only mid morning when we pulled up to the area of the trail head. None of us could remember anything about the trail here, and we soon saw why. I think we'd expected a signed trail and we didn't find that. We didn't even find a trail at first. It wasn't until we hit the spine of the ridge that things got a little clearer. And a lot steeper too. Wow, that really got the blood pumping. It may only be an elevation gain of 70 metres and change but it happens over a very short distance. Whew!
The south facing slope was dotted here and there with prairie crocuses. Most of the weren't open yet but one or two had unfuled to follow the sun.
We spotted the marker post from some distance away and the cap soon afterwards. The cap is between one and two feet off to the left hand side (looking from the front) of the marker post. It's in excellent shape with no tool marks at all.
Thanks for the cap that got the blood flowing, outforthehunt. (FOUND)
