It's Still Winter at Semaphore Lakes
It's Trail Tuesday and this week I have some photos from a short trip to Semaphore Lakes. If you don't mind rattling your truck up to the top of the Hurley FSR, this is a great summer destination.
There are some epic mud puddles this time of year, and the first snow patch is just a few minutes up the trail. Boots and gators are a must.
The American long weekend was freezing cold here in Whistler, and we arrived at Semaphore Lakes in a brisk wind, rain, fog, and low cloud cover. No matter what the weather, I doubt if this place could ever look bad.. it was still beautiful as ever, with a number of the lakes still frozen, and the waterfall tumbling down from the Train Glacier.
Today we're back to super hot summer weather, so the snow shouldn't hang on too much longer up there.. can't wait to go back and climb Face Mountain this summer, after looking over at it so many trips up Locomotive Mountain. More on this in 2 weeks when we'll be back!
