On August 23rd of 2015, my girlfriend Amanda convinced me to hike up to Garibaldi, which is located a couple of hours from Vancouver. It’s about a 20km round trip hike, and I figured I would enjoy the challenge.
Now that it’s all said and done, I definitely enjoyed it. At the time though, it was hard as hell. Basically, you walk up switchbacks for 3 hours, each one looking the exact same in an attempt to test your mental strength.
Once at the top, the views are breathtaking. Garibaldi is a glacier fed lake, with stunning blue water that is as cold as it gets. Here are some photos of the hike, the glacier, and the lake.
