Perhaps the toughest but most rewarding hike in the region is to Upper Joffre Lake. The three lakes in this subalpine chain are strung like a turquoise necklace on the mountainside below the massive Joffre Glacier Group.

This is a 11.5 km hike(return) with a 400 metre climb. Look at the view, it was worth every step!

Wow, this makes me homesick! We used to live in AK and drove through BC several times ea year to take our dtr to college in Seattle. The scenery is incredible! You never tire of it and each time you take a hike or see this you remind yourself how lucky you are to be there and experience that view! Isn't God awesome!:cool:

Thanks for sharing. When I was young and still at home my dad would let each of us pick where we wanted to go on a "tour". He had a Gold Wing road bike and we would take a trip just him and one of us kids. I picked Canada so we traveld through northern Idaho and into Montana and up into Canada through Glacier National Park. This reminded me of that trip and how much I loved it and the time I got to spend with my dad.

11.5 km = 7.15 miles and 400 meters = 1312.3 feet

Those photos are beautiful. I want to be there...I'm sure I couldn't make it up there. But I'd try for as close as I could get!!

If you ever really want to know how to translate this there is a super nice spyware free program called versaverter you can download. They also have a world clock. You can convert temperature, measurements, mass, density...so many things. I've used it for years.
