BC Day Well Spent

 

What better way to spend BC Day than by celebrating the natural wonder of this province? With another family we went for a fabulous hike up to Forbidden Plateau – accessed from our local ski hill. It was a beautiful day, a long 12 km hike broken up with spectacular scenery, a swim in a warm mountain lake, and finished with an ice cream treat!

Truly, a wonderful and beautiful place to spend the day.
